The ABC Owned Television Stations plan to rebrand their Live Well digital broadcast network to Localish, the group’s local storytelling initiative.
The change is effective Feb. 17.
With a broadcast home, Localish will be expanding from short-form series into long-form programming. Localish will also continue to debut stories on its website, localish.com.
“We first launched Localish as a reflection of our deep commitment to the communities we serve,” said Wendy McMahon, president, ABC Owned Television Stations. “The resonance of Localish’s storytelling has enabled us to forge connections with a new generation of viewers. We’re excited to start this next chapter of the brand and give our viewers even more ways to live like a local.”
ABC introduced Localish in 2018.
The series that will make up the initial programming on Localish include:
⦁ More In Common: Inspiring stories of Americans who come together despite their differences
