From what I've seen of NewsNation, it feels like they've spent $20m just to put on local anchors, but the set is very nice in comparison to some of the local station sets.

I feel the same. Outside of Dean Reynolds (EX-CBS News) and Rob Nelson (ABC News and WABC-TV New York), the rest of the talent were picked up from local stations, some of whom weren't owned by Nexstar(ex: Ji Suk Yi formerly of ABC7 Chicago and Rudabeh Shahbazi of CBS 4 Miami)

Just to clarify Netflix does NOT own WGNA, Nexstar Media Group does.

Well your phones mistake really.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I suppose on balance, it's cheaper for Nexstar to commission a three hour daily news programme in peak than to make their own or buy in output for WGN America.
