    Inevitable, I suppose. But in a top-5 market?

    Corporate synergy.

    This doesn't surprise me. That NBC affiliate has always had issues and I'd heard stuff about them producing more content from central hubs. CSN does good work, but that is rough to see.

    A similar move has been rumored in Chicago for over a year.

    For years, they couldn't be seen over the air in San Francisco, until they finally moved their stick from the Santa Cruz mountains to Mt. San Bruno, where all SF stations broadcast from until they built Sutro Tower. The biggest question is, though, how to boil down the nightly half-hour show they do on cable into the 2-3 minutes they'll get on broadcast.

    I'd imagine they'd just reuse the highlights and shoot a separate shorter segment. That can't take that long, and CSN has a ton of resources (established a good pipline to SF State's broadcast school and pulled in a TON of talent of late).

    And on a personal note, I truly hated those years when you couldn't get NBC over the air in the Bay Area.
