CBSN New York- Live 7AM and 1PM with News at Noon (live)

CBSN LA- Live 8AM and 1PM.

.... and breaking news when it happens.

 


CBSN Boston- September/October, CBSN Bay Area- December. However, I can't see them both premiering in December.

 

Actually, CBSN L.A. is also live at 7am and 1pm.

 

CBSN N.Y. also has a live hour at 7pm.

Anyone have an idea how much this job pays? SF is so expensive I don't know how people could work this job (or other TV jobs) and live there. I've read stories that people with high paying tech jobs have to look far out for "affordable" housing.

 

Being comfortable with roommates should also be in the job description, because there's no way this job pays enough to have your own place in SF proper. Or really anywhere within walking distance to a BART station.

Unless you make at least $200,000 a year - if not more - forget living anywhere close to San Francisco.

$100K/year is amazing living everywhere else, including where I live.

In San Francisco, $100K/year is considered LOW-INCOME (not making that up).

well what about Oakland + San Jose? And I think we had similar conversation last year about living expenses in the bay area where some people had to commute as far as Sacramento to work in SF.

It's the same in the immediate Bay Area. Oakland USED to be relatively cheap but gentrification has changed that, especially in the western part of the city. Lots of folks commute from Tracy and Stockton as well as Gilroy to the south.

I wonder if this CBSN project will expand to affiliates eventually?

 

If that was to happen, I'd see Cox Media Group's CBS affiliates taking first crack. After all, KIRO and WHIO already have 24/7 streaming channels.

I'd sooner see other ownership groups (namely the larger players like Sinclair, Nexstar, etc.) independently starting such services.

I see CBSN expansion as CBS' step towards detaching itself from needing TV affiliates. It's not that far fetched to possibly see networks not renew affiliate agreements within 10 years. I don't think that will happen that soon, but it could. CBS and other networks are in the video content business and are now going direct to consumer, cutting out the TV station and telecom middle men that take a cut.

 

Where does this leave TV stations? They either can't figure out how to adapt fast enough and fade into history, (ok, this part would probably be much more than 10 years out), or try to adapt. If broadcast networks ditch affiliates, station groups may start programming their own station groups as a "network" so to speak. But would there be enough quality content to go around?

 

Local stations have limited resources as it is to produce non-news programming, which is generally more expensive. Let's pretend it costs $500,000/year to produce a local weekly/daily non-news program. A company like Netflix can more easily afford to fund the project and "sell" it to a worldwide audience to make money compared to a TV station that ,at most, has an audience of several cities or maybe an entire state. This limits the content local stations can provide and makes it hard for them to compete with non-local content providers. So I wonder, is the future of local TV stations going to be just streaming news online with maybe a few other local shows that they try to sell subscriptions to a la Netfilx, and ditch an actual broadcast antenna? 

 

As as much as this sounds bad for TV stations, the networks aren't going to be eager to drop affiliates until the networks themselves figure out their business model and revenue stream that would replace affiliates.

 

Sorry for the long post. Just thinking out loud.

As far as pay goes, Bay Area stations do have to offer competitive compensation if they want to find new hires. CBS can’t offer the same pay in San Francisco as it does in Dallas. The Bay Area newsrooms are also generally more unionized than a lot of other markets, which theoretically increases pay. Theoretically.
