Is there trouble at WPIX? The news division at the local CW-affiliate, which we still like to think of as "New York's Movie Station," has had a rough year. On top of charges of ageism and clown attacks, disappearing newscasts and declining viewers, the station recently became the first local newscaster to drop its sports department. And, the Post reports, this may not be the end of the station's cost cutting. "There's no line that can't be crossed," one staffer told the paper.

It remains unclear how the station will cover sports going forward—though likely the anchors will just deliver scores now. And that's not all! The station is also reportedly trying to change union rules so that its on-location news shoots don't have a camera person riding with reporters—à la Time Warner's cheap-but-indispensable NY1. If they get the change, WPIX would be the first local broadcaster to do so. A spokesman for Tribune, the company that owns the station, has yet to respond to our request for comment. At least VD Vampire Diaries isn't going anywhere?
