OAN partners with Major Market Broadcasting

January 11, 2023

One America News Network (OAN), a 24/7 source of national and international news in the US, has announced that its broadcast over-the-air (OTA) channel variant OAN Plus will be available in more than five million new OTA only households through a partnership with Major Market Broadcasting including launches in top DMA’s New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, Tampa and Orlando.

Over the past 12 months, OAN Plus has significantly expanded its broadcast multicast carriage and the channel remains on track to meet its expected target reach of 15 million OTA only homes by the end of Q1 2023.  Most recently, OAN Plus has added two new daily live hours of news coverage to complement its existing programming blend of political commentary and analysis and its top-performing lineup of primetime political talk shows.  As the presidential election news cycle builds in 2023, OAN Plus expects to broaden its live coverage to more than five hours daily.

“The Major Market Broadcasting portfolio of broadcast stations is robust and it provides us with some exciting new and powerful market coverage,” stated Alex Kopacz, EVP, Content Distribution and Strategy at OAN. “The OAN brand will clearly resonate strongly in 2023 around the presidential election cycle so launching the channel in these top markets now truly offers a major boost to our voice.”

Major Market Broadcasting owns and operates 20 stations in top markets across the country accommodating more than 100 multicast channels.  AWE Plus (A Wealth of Entertainment), a second entertainment channel from Herring Networks, will also be available as part of the partnership.

“As America’s most diverse television station group, we are very pleased to add to our robust group of channels that feature strong programming from a variety of sources and viewpoints,” said Ravi Kapur, Principal at Major Market Broadcasting
