ABC News might be getting into the 24 hours news game with a new digital channel.
The Disney owned network is exploring the possibility of a new 24-hour digital news channel, according to the NY Post.
The post says that the channel wouldn’t launch until next year.
ABC used to have its own stand-alone news channel, ABC News Now, which it rolled together with Univision’s Fusion.
But when ABC exited the Fusion joint venture, it left the network without a stand-alone channel, just at a time when other outlets were recording sky-high ratings thanks to the election.
ABC News chief James Goldston is spearheading the effort, and is bullish on it given the election bump from recent Facebook live experiments.
