24/7 Network Signs News Network

24/7 network provider Local Radio Networks (LRN) has signed with ABC News Radio to bring ABC’s award-winning information programming exclusively to LRN affiliates. LRN affiliates will have access to the worldwide resources of ABC News and ABC News Radio, including hourly newscasts from ABC News Now, ABC Digital, and ABC Cuts.

According to LRN CEO Steve Swick, the deal means “LRN affiliates will receive world-leading, highly respected news, along with ultimate flexibility. LRN affiliates already experience maximum local control of their 24/7 format broadcasts, and now, with the freedom to choose from a variety of ABC News Radio options, they can continue to meet the specific needs of their individual markets.”
