CBS Television Stations and CBS Interactive announced today the launch of CBSN Pittsburgh. This is the eighth local streaming news services of the 13 planned to launch across the country. CBSN Pittsburgh features anchored programming, coverage of live breaking news events in the region, as well as an extensive library of local news content that will be available for on-demand viewing.
Previously, CBS has launched local CBSN OTT news streaming services for New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Minnesota, Philly, and Denver. Chicago is expected to launch later this month, followed by Dallas-Ft. Worth, Miami, Sacramento, and Baltimore.
CBSN Pittsburgh will feature live streams of KDKA-TV regularly scheduled newscasts, Pittsburgh Today, and live coverage of breaking news.
“KDKA is one of the finest local stations in the country and one of the crown jewels of our group,” said Peter Dunn, President, CBS Television Stations. “We are excited to broaden the reach of the station’s award-winning news coverage by launching CBSN Pittsburgh – a service that makes our premium local news content available to consumers whenever and wherever they want to watch. Our first seven CBSN Local services are exceeding our expectations. We look forward to seeing this trend continue in Pittsburgh as well as the other major markets where we will soon be launching.”
“This is a landmark day for everyone at KDKA and The CW Pittsburgh, as we launch this exciting new platform that provides viewers here in Western Pennsylvania and across the country with the high-quality journalism that has defined us for decades,” said Chris Cotugno, Vice President and General Manager, KDKA-TV and WPCW-TV. “We look forward to having CBSN Pittsburgh add to our legacy as a local news leader.”
Viewers in the Pittsburgh area will be able to watch on CBSNews.com and on the CBS News apps for mobile and connected TV devices. The service is also available through www.CBSPittsburgh.com and the CBS Local mobile app.
These local services are ad-supported. Eventually, they will be added to CBS All Access live lineups in their respective markets.
