NY1 and the rise of one-man-bands

The New York Times profiles Time-Warner cable news outlet NY1. Over the last decade the Manhattan-based operation has been known for its use of "one-man bands" (reporter who operates his or her own camera in the field) and other low-cost newsgathering methods. The article notes that a joke among New York reporters was the NY1 logo meant the station was run by one person. It's not, as the article points out. The station has grown and cut a niche for itself in the New York market.
