The first 24-hour Black News Channel is expected to launch November 15, 2019 at 6:00 AM
The cable network is the brainchild of J.C. Watts, Jr., former U.S Representative (R-Oklahoma) now BNC chairman. And veteran journalist Bob Brilliante who will serve as the cable network’s CEO.
BNC Newsroom executives made the rounds at the National Association Black Journalists Job fair in Miami, FL earlier this month to recruit top talent.
The news channel, headquartered in Tallahassee, Fl, will broadcast to 33 million households nationwide with a presence in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York.
