'One America News' cable TV network to be launched this summer
Washington Time, Herring Broadcasting to provide national, international news
The Washington Times along with Herring Broadcasting have announced their intention to create a new national cable news network called One America News, set to debut nationwide this summer. "One America News Network will provide Americans a new, credible source for national and international news and investigative reporting as well as talk shows designed to foster an independent, cutting-edge debate about the policies, issues and solutions facing the country," Robert Herring Sr., CEO of Herring Broadcasting says.
Wholly owned by Herring Broadcasting, One America News will rely on The Washington Times as its primary source of information and analysis from the nation's capital.
Wholly owned by Herring Broadcasting, One America News will rely on The Washington Times as its primary source of information and analysis from the nation's capital. Broadcasts will originate from a state-of-the-art TV studio adjacent to the newsroom that has anchored The Times since it was founded 31 years ago.
"The Times is an authoritative voice on policy, politics and national security news in Washington, and it provides our network a powerful reporting and analytical capability to help our viewers make sense of developments in an increasingly complex, and polarized capital city," President Charles Herring, president of Herring Broadcasting and Wealth TV said.
The son of Robert Herring, he says that he anticipates some lively dynamics ahead. "We're excited to have reporters, editors and commentators from Ralph Hallow to Emily Miller who can whisk into the studio from The Times' newsroom and provide real-time, trusted reporting and credible analysis on the pressing issues of the day," the younger Herring said.
"We're excited to be the official Washington news source for a network that will appeal to Americans concerned about political accountability, smaller government spending and taxation, the protection of liberties and a strong national security capability in America," Washington Times CEO Larry Beasley says.
"We have been hard at work transforming our company to be a digital-first news organization. Our partnership with One America News furthers that goal and our potential reach to millions of viewers."
The Washington Times is read by more than 100,000 daily and weekly print newspaper subscribers and 10 million monthly readers online. The Times currently broadcasts a live, daily radio show from a studio in its newsroom.
