Why CNN Newsource Video?

Top News Brand + Local News Sites

The CNN Newsource Video Affiliate Network is comprised of CNN and 900+ trusted local news partners and our collective digital, mobile and social platforms. Your brand would appear in a brand-safe environment alongside trusted local news partners and personalities that are well-recognized and respected in their respective communities.

Reach more than national/cable news

By far, local news reaches more adults than both national broadcast network news and cable news (Nielsen, Local Watch Report, Sep 2017). By extension, local news reaches millions of US households through their web, mobile and social platforms. Your single ad relationship with CNN Newsource taps into this vast network of engaged consumers.

Video Engagement Rates

Local news audience spends 88% more time on a page with video, and posts with video are shared 12 times more than those without. This plays to the very strength of VAN: a trusted source of breaking news, viral stories and compelling journalism reported and produced by some of the best news organizations in the business including CNN, the world's news leader.
