First 24-hour news channel "by and for" African Americans set to launch during Black History Month

"...But I just can't get past the fact that it’s run by two Republican white men.”

Founded by former Rep. J.C. Watts, a Republican from Oklahoma, the network will premiere in 33 million households primarily in large African American markets such as New York City, Los Angeles and Atlanta.

“Even though I'm a Democrat and he is a Republican, I felt it was time for black people in the media to work together without getting involved or entrenched in the partisan divide,” Chavis said.

Peace,

This channel is already off to a bad start. I'm in Atlanta and I have Comcast. It was supposed to lunched on Monday and my area and provider was supposed to carry this channel at launch. Well here we are at Thursday and I still haven't seen it.

I can't even speak on the content until I see it for self. I'm not super confident considering how poor the launch has been.

Peace

National Black News Channel makes debut

The goal of the network is to reach black audiences with stories that give a broader perspective about their community than what other networks provide. That could include health issues unique to African Americans, discussions about historically black colleges and universities, how federal housing policy proposal could affect them or just simply making people aware of positive accomplishments African-Americans are achieving, Watt said.
