CBSNewYork.com to Make a Return

CBS will merge the websites for WCBS-TV, 1010 WINS and WFAN SportsRadio 66 in the coming weeks, according to Broadcasting & Cable. The new domain name, CBSNewYork.com, is actually an old one, having been used by WCBS, WFAN and WCBS NewsRadio 880 around five to ten years ago.

The stations have already been collaborating in recent months, with CBS 2's sports anchors doing the 11 p.m. update on WFAN, weather anchors doing the weather on WCBS 880 during the day, and radio reporters often turning up on CBS 2's broadcasts.

B&C also reported this nugget:
The station is considering a 4:30 a.m. news, too. “We’ll see if it’s needed,” says [CBS Television Stations president Peter] Dunn. “If it is, we’ll do it.”
