Tallahassee, Florida – The Black News Channel (BNC), the nation’s only culturally specific news channel that reflects the Black community’s diverse viewpoints, announced today the launch of its new OTT news streaming service BNC 24/7 on digital platforms Select TV, Roku, Tiki LIVE, and Xumo. With BNC 24/7 the Black News Channel extends its informative, educational, inspiring and empowering programming to an even wider viewing audience.
BNC viewers have become accustomed to the dynamic news and information programming on Spectrum Cable and Xfinity X-1, that include BNC News Live, DC
Today, The Kelly Wright Show, BNC Prime Live, and BNC Now, as well as topical shows Being a Woman, All Things Men, and more. BNC 24/7 will feature Morning Anchor Ashley Flete, Prime Anchor Venise Toussaint in more extended and in-depth news programs including BNC First, BNC 24/7 Live (Studio B), and BNC First in Review. This talented team of news anchors will provide an even more in depth look at news and events affecting the Black community and beyond that will complement BNC’s current news reporting.
“More and more people in this country and around the world are turning to their internet-connected devices for news,” shared BNC President/CEO Princell Hair “With the launch of our all-new digital programming BNC 24/7, we are going to where people, especially younger viewers, seek news and information that helps to make sense of the events affecting our nation, our neighborhoods and our families.”

Black News Channel is an independent network that is minority-owned and operated, and the nation’s only provider of 24/7 cable news programming dedicated to covering the unique perspective of African American communities. BNC provides access to information and educational programming to meet the specific needs of this growing and dynamic community that is a major consumer of subscription television services. BNC delivers an authentic, new voice that represents African Americans in mainstream media and fosters political, economic, and social discourse; the network is one voice representing the many voices of African Americans. BNC’s programming illuminates truth about the unique challenges facing urban communities and helps close the “image gap” that exists today between the negative Black stereotypes perpetuated by mainstream media news and our enterprising African American communities.
