You Have Publishing Power

Now You’re The News
So, What’s Your Story?

The real power of your own channel is its publishing power. Your channel allows you to publish your news along side the normal news stories we publish on a daily basis. You’re news isn’t just “out there somewhere”, it fits in and it looks like other news stories people are interested in. Since you too are a local or regional establishment, you’re news already fits with our viewers preferences perfectly.

You Already Fit In

The news you air here reaches a targeted audience. It’s news about the area and our viewers, from all throughout the country, love our local businesses and hearing about the region. Your news here is shown in similar and relative categories as to what your news is about. Not only is what you air available on your own channel, it also makes it to our mainstream viewer sections allowing your news to be seen throughout our entire network.
