signed a syndication agreement that will make local news video from 16 of the stations it owns available on
The two sides said the arrangement is the first video agreement between a network-owned television station group and an Internet news provider. Yahoo! News users will have access to 10 to 20 local news video stories a day, from each of the 16 markets. The videos will include breaking news and other locally focused reports.
Yahoo! will highlight the local video to users who select a city or zip code within a CBS-owned station market. Among the markets covered are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Boston.
