E.W. Scripps has launched Florida 24 Network, a statewide news network available over-the-top for viewers in all of the state’s local markets.
The network will air real-time reporting from Scripps' six local TV
stations in the Miami, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Tallahassee and Fort Myers markets.
It will be available in linear form and on-demand via its OTT app on streaming platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Android TV, as well as through all Scripps Florida stations' streaming apps.
The coverage will focus on issues of importance to Floridians, including politics, tourism, wildlife, beaches, lifestyle and agriculture, with frequent weather updates.
The network will be staffed by a dedicated team of journalists and producers from Scripps stations across the country, led by News Director Nicole Wolfe, based at Scripps' WSFL in Miami, and Senior Director of Digital Matt Borek, based at Scripps' WFTS in Tampa.
