Very common with all news organizations to use other reporters stories. It was not stolen if it was credited. Its common for local news to use others reports when not in the local area.
Even major networks do this. Watch CNN or Fox News and you can see the reports from the Associated Press scrolling across the bottom on TV, and you see links on their websites.
Also there is reporting on what other news organizations have reported.
All very common.
