CBSN comes to Minnesota

CBS launched CBSN Minnesota this week from its station in Minneapolis, WCCO.

A partnership between CBS Television Stations and CBS Interactive, CBSN Minnesota will include local newscasts, coverage of breaking news and a library of programming for on-demand viewing.

CBSN Minnesota joins services in New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and San Francisco.

“Research shows strong demand for OTT content here in the Twin Cities. We are thrilled to have this opportunity to make our award-winning news programming available, both here at home and across the country, for people to watch on their favorite platforms whenever and wherever they want the latest news from WCCO,” said Ann Ouellette of WCCO in a statement.

The next CBS O&O to launch a CBSN Local version will be in Philadelphia at KYW.
