Black News Channel To Launch Feb. 10
Black News Channel (BNC) updated the launch of the African American cable news network to Black History Month — on Feb. 10.
Network executives previously announced plans to launch to an audience significantly larger than its original projections. BNC said this new date “provides the time necessary to build out the distribution platforms, apps, and other infrastructure necessary.”
“Black History Month is an appropriate time to launch the Black News Channel”, said Bob Brillante, co-founder and CEO of BNC. “We are committed to make sure that when our viewers tune in they are witness to a quality viewing experience.”
J.C. Watts, BMC chairman and co-founder, BNC added: “Our technicians, crew and launch partners are working overtime to make sure that the additional pieces are in place to provide our African American audience with the programming that tells more of our story in a way that is not provided by current news outlets. We will make history together as we launch Feb. 10, 2020, to more than 70 million homes and devices.”
BNC said it plans to release more information this month about how and where customers can view the network’s programming.
