More than a year after its launch, the local news-sharing arrangement between Philadelphia's NBC and Fox owned-and-operated stations has become a successful partnership. LNS allows the outlets to pool news conferences and routine stories, while dedicating their individual resources to enterprise and investigative pieces. "The LNS allows us to go out and do stories the other stations aren't doing," said Kingsley Smith, news director of Fox affiliate WTXF.
