WCAU Exits LNS Content Share
NBC's Philly outlet going its own way, getting its own helicopter

Eric Lerner took over as general manager in March. Anzio Williams came on board as news director in July.
The split was previously reported on Philly.com. It will officially happen in the next few months.
WCAU plans to have its own helicopter, says the station insider, by the end of the year.
The move, which the station rep says was announced to employees earlier this summer, is about helping WCAU differentiate its news product from the competition.
The concept debuted in Philadelphia in January 2009. Then NBC owned stations president John Wallace and Fox Television Stations CEO Jack Abernethy announced the partnership late in 2008.
NBC Owned Stations is still involved in content partnerships with stations in New York, Chicago and Dallas, while it has exited shares in Washington, Los Angeles, and soon, Philadelphia.
