One thing that still doesn't seem clear - are these news/talk shows going to be primarily focused on Long Island news, or will it encompass the entire tri-state area? I would think they would want to cover the entire area to gain a larger audience.
WCBS does have two Long Island-based reporters plus Richard Rose who, I think, will also focus on island events.
With the new news programs starting on Monday, any word if they will be simulcast on 2.2? Seems as if they are truly limiting themselves if they will only be on WLNY.
