Last week, CBS announced a special streaming-only local news program. Now WSB-TV in Atlanta has announced 2 hours of local news every morning only streaming online.

“As more and more people adopt streaming technology, WSB-TV continues to offer the most complete news product anywhere,” said Misti Turnbull, Channel 2 Action News Director. “This expansion of Channel 2 Action News in the morning is just one more step in offering viewers critical news and weather information where, when, and how they want it.”

The new 2-hour streaming is available on their site, mobile app, Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV to name a few.
