Cheddar has announced its new network, Cheddar 2.0, which will merge its business and headline news networks into one. This new combination includes a refreshed set of graphics and 10 hours of live news every day starting at 7 am, followed by a new evening show titled “News Wrap.” It also comes with the new tag line, “News Worth Investing In.”
“The network will stay true to its business focus on technology, media, and innovation and also include the top stories of the day that are worth “investing” your time in,” the network said in a press release. “We also believe that the unification into one network will simplify the confusion between the two Cheddars and allow us to put our full effort, more wood behind fewer arrows, into building a single widely and consistently available live news network.”
Cheddar has been facing challenges surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, including the decision to lay off some anchors and staff. It’s also been facing the reality of having to produce and broadcast its news from home, which surprisingly led to an increase in viewership. Today, a small crew of staff and anchors are returning to the studio with caution around adhering to safe social distancing practices.
“The teamwork and can-do attitude over the last few weeks has been inspiring and we are approaching our future with a learner’s mindset while asking ourselves not only how we build Cheddar for today, but how we build it for the future,” Cheddar stated.
You can watch Cheddar on YouTube TV, Hulu, Spectrum, Sling, Optimum, Suddenlink, and more. It’s also available for free on Pluto, Roku Channel, Amazon Fire News, and more than 40 broadcast stations.
