According to Wikipedia, NewsNation is an American subscription television network owned by the Nexstar Media Group, and is the company’s only wholly owned, national cable-originated television channel. The channel runs a mixture of entertainment programming (consisting of comedy and drama series, and theatrical feature films) for most of the broadcast day and a straight-news format during the evening and early overnight hours. Known for most of its history as Superstation WGN and WGN America, on March 1, 2021, the channel was relaunched from WGN America into NewsNation, a cable news network named after its flagship news program, as part of a planned expansion of its news programming.
