CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming service, discusses the evolution of digital election coverage since 2016.
CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming service, launched in the fall of 2014 and has evolved significantly since the 2016 election — both editorially and technologically. We’ve launched “Red & Blue,” a weekday political show anchored by Elaine Quijano, and we’ve ramped up special coverage around major political news events across all day parts. We’ve built live alerts, a first-to-market OTT alert which gives our audience additional viewing options. And we’ve expanded our availability, bringing CBSN to more than 20 partner platforms. Darius Walker, Rob Gifford and Elaine Quijano talk through the evolution of CBSN’s digital election coverage.
