Radio stations these days have very small news departments, if they have any at all. So how does your station cover the news and reach out to the community? That's where FNN News comes in.
FNN provides stations with live bottom of the hour newscasts, plus sportscasts and business reports that make each station sound in touch, relevant, and vibrant. Stations that do have news departments can use FNN's "OnDemand" sound bite services to supplement their local news coverage and round out their own locally produced news programs. Many of our affiliates use a combination of live newscasts and "FNN OnDemand" material, which is included as part of your affiliation.
With newsrooms in Orlando, Tampa, and Miami, along with our state capitol bureau in Tallahassee, FNN covers news events “from the Panhandle to the Keys.” FNN also provides live coverage of elections, hurricanes, and other special news oriented events.
FNN affiliation is on a no-fee/barter-only basis. Network spots can run as fed adjacent to the newscast, sportscast, or business report. Alternatively, stations can choose to schedule the spots to run within their regular programming.
