WNBC/NYC, often criticized in recent years for falling behind on breaking news (“where’s 4?”) and still adjusting to its new evolution into a “content center,” delivered old-school style when the big breaker hit the river Thursday afternoon. “Ch. 4 was first on with a report of the crash, and had the first footage from the scene. The others followed shortly,” reports Richard Huff in the Daily News.
