SNY could branch out into broadcast television news

Michael Starr of the Post wrote this story today about SNY offering its sports news services to local broadcast channels looking to outsource that task.

When I first heard about this concept a few months ago from people in the local  sports TV business, I thought it sounded like a logical idea.

Logical, that is, within the context of what has been happening in recent years to local broadcast sports operations; they have been severely cut back on the theory that sports fans get their information elsewhere anyway.

I'm not sure where all this will end up, but I hope somehow it doesn't cost some of the quality people still toiling in local broadcast TV sports their jobs.
