The deal that was made many years ago was that WWOR ch 9 would move to NJ, and be NJ centric with news. That lasted a few years when they started to be more a tri-state newscast then dropped NJ coverage after being bought by Fox. Eventually Fox closed their news department. Several politicians want to challenge the license in saying Fox is in violation with the old agreement. Thing is, Fox has closed and destroyed the former studios. The channel today is of little value with judge shows, many hours of Family Feud and the My Network repeats. NJPBS has an evening show, but its produced by Thirteen, and is only a half hour, so it scapes the surface of a few news stories. When News 12 NJ started, it was co-produced with the state's largest newspaper. That deal ended, and since then Optimum has diluted the effort, getting a lot worse the last few months. It is a shame since there is a need despite the coverage of big stories by the NY flagships or Philly stations.
