Rogers titles will be providing content for new 24-hour news TV channel

Maclean's and other Rogers Publishing magazines will be tapped for content for the new 24-hour news television channel being launched by Rogers Communications Inc. CityNews Channel will be launched in October, a complement to the company's 24-hour news radio station 680 News and Citytv. The new channel will be going up against the recently launched Sun News as well as established all-news outlets CTV News Channel and CBC News Network and Toronto-only CP24.
“We're taking the number one news radio format in Canada, 680 News, and bringing it to television under the brand CityNews Channel,” president of Rogers Broadcasting, Scott Moore, said in a statement Monday.
“By incorporating our trailblazing and trusted news brands from CityNews, 680 News, and publishing – including Canada’s most trusted news magazine, Maclean’s – CityNews Channel is poised to be the destination local news channel.”
