CBS on Monday announced the launch of a new news service based in one of the country’s top markets. The launch of CBSN Los Angeles marks the second of the company’s local direct-to-consumer streaming news services in major markets across the U.S.
The effort is an initiative of CBS Television Stations and CBS Interactive.
“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,” the announcement notes. The launch follows the December 2018 launch of CBSN New York.
CBSN Los Angeles’ daily lineup includes live streams of KCBS (CBS 2) and KCAL (KCAL 9), regularly scheduled newscasts and additional weekday one-hour newscasts at 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. that are produced exclusively for the platform. CBSN Los Angeles programming will be led by CBS 2 and KCAL 9 anchors and reporters along with a team of journalists who will report exclusively for the streaming service.
