PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon now plans to split its second headquarters between two places, and is in talks with three cities that are the leading contenders. 

None of them is Philadelphia, but Mayor Jim Kenney is not getting excited about it.

Kenney is deeply skeptical about the reports because, he says, Amazon is not prone to leaks. 

"One thing they do as well as anything, be it their website or their delivery methods, is they keep their power dry, they keep it quiet so it's speculation. I'm not going to speculate on speculation," he said. 

Kenney says as far as he's concerned, Philadelphia is still in the running.
