ABC Looking at 24 Digital News Channel

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.
