It's not a new idea.
Washingtonand Oregon could conceivably be in one market. LA, SD and SF are all much more distinct from one another despite the fact that they share the same state.

There are lots of news issues that affect the whole state, not just individual regions. I would not mind more of that coverage (especially around election time) instead of hearing about a peeping tom in Vallejo or high school football in Sonoma.

and KNTV isn't in SF

If the news coverage was more like that then yes, it would be more relevant and interesting. I'm not even interested in those BS stories when they're local.

I also think that a state-wide television network would be fine; kind of like a California version of CNN. Just a snapshot of what's happening; like serious murders or accidents across the state. Last week I watched the local channel 5\ KTLA report the news; one long segment was on how kids had thrown marbles through the windows of 10 car dealerships in Van Nuys followed up by a story about a robbery of an El Pollo Loco franchise in Azusa where all the robbers wore Halloween masks of President Obama. Wow, that was earth-shattering news
