Now the first of these networks has gone live: CBSN New York. This network is dedicated to New York City and partners with WCBS and WLNY with an additional one-hour news cast specifically made for CBSN New York at 7am, 1pm, and 7pm.
“The launch of CBSN New York represents the beginning of an exciting new era for our local media business,” said Peter Dunn, president, CBS Television Stations. “We are thrilled to be able to provide our premium local news content on all of the most popular platforms and open the door to multiple revenue streams. CBSN New York and the other streaming local news services launching in 2019 will be a perfect companion to the award-winning national and global news reporting provided by CBSN.”
“CBSN viewers have told us they want more local content, and we know there will be a tremendous appetite for the high-quality, live-streaming local coverage from our stations around the country,” said Christy Tanner, executive vice president and general manager, CBS News Digital.
