CBSN Launches a Free News Service in Minnesota With More Coming in Early 2020

Today CBS News announced that they have launched a free 24/7 version of CBSN streaming service in Minnesota. This new free streaming service will offer a mix of national and local news. CBS went on to announce that they will be rolling out local versions of CBSN to more markets including Philadelphia in early 2020.

“WCCO has for many years had an outstanding legacy in local news and serving the community. We are very happy to broaden its reach from local to national by making the station’s premium local content available on our streaming platform,” said Peter Dunn, president, CBS Television Stations.

“Research shows strong demand for OTT content here in the Twin Cities,” said Ann Ouellette, VP and general manager, WCCO. “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.”

Other markets will be getting a local version of CBSN’s free 24/7 news service in Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Miami, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore at some point in the future.

You can find the CBSN Minnesota news feed in the CBS News app and soon in its own stand-alone app.
