One America News, a news channel owned by Herring Networks, has secured carriage on Buckeye CableSystem, to launch in Toledo and Sandusky, Ohio, later in 2015, the programmer said.
OAN will be positioned near channels including CNN and Fox News, and Herring-owned AWE will receive broader carriage under the agreement, moving to Buckeye's Standard Service tier.
“We are extremely pleased to add Buckeye CableSystem to our growing list of One America News Network carriage partners and excited that AWE will be available to a broader audience,” Charles Herring, president of Herring Networks, said in a release. “With more live news coverage than any other cable news outlet, One America News will be welcomed by news viewers on Buckeye CableSystem.”
OAN launched on July 4, 2013. AWE was previously known as WealthTV and has carriage on providers including AT&T U-verse, Verizon FiOS and CenturyLink Prism TV.
