CBS announced that they are offering LA viewers a streaming service that combines CBSN and KCBS/KCAL.
CBSN Los Angeles is the second of the Company’s local direct-to-consumer streaming news services in major markets across the country.
CBSN Los Angeles features 24/7 anchored programming, coverage of live breaking news events in the region, as well as an extensive library of local news content that will be available for on-demand viewing.
“Beginning with the launch of CBSN New York, which has exceeded our expectations and is steadily growing its audience, to today’s debut in Los Angeles, and continuing with our plans to launch our next services in Boston and San Francisco later this year, we are excited to be moving forward with our commitment to make our premium local news content available on all of the most popular platforms and open the door to creating new revenue streams,” said Peter Dunn, President, CBS Television Stations.
“As we have proven with the success of CBSN New York, the need to deliver local, relevant and useful information regardless of device or platform continues to grow,” said Adam Wiener, EVP/GM of CBS Local Digital Media. “By harnessing the newsgathering power of KCBS/KCAL, we are excited to have Los Angeles as the next market to leverage CBSN distribution."
CBSN Los Angeles joins CBSN New York, which debuted in December 2018.
