The Washington Times announced Thursday that it has joined in a strategic partnership with Herring Broadcasting to create a national cable news network, One America News, which is set to debut nationwide this summer.

“One America News Network will provide Americans a new, credible source for national and international news and investigative reporting as well as talk shows designed to foster an independent, cutting-edge debate about the policies, issues, and solutions facing the country,” said Robert Herring Sr., CEO of Herring Broadcasting, which also owns Wealth TV, a lifestyle and entertainment channel distributed by cable and satellite providers around the world.

The intent is to provide credible news and thoughtful analysis for “viewers with self-described independent, conservative, and libertarian values,” Herring said.

He praised Fox News for its service to those values.

“Fox News has done a great job serving the center-right and independent audiences.

But those who consider themselves liberal have a half dozen or more choices on TV each day from which to get their news.”

The Washington Times will be the primary source of news and analysis from the nation’s capital for the new network, which is owned by the Herring Broadcasting.

Broadcasts will originate from a state-of-the-art TV studio adjacent to the Times’ newsroom.

“The Times is an authoritative voice on policy, politics and national security news in Washington, and it provides our network a powerful reporting and analytical capability to help our viewers make sense of developments in an increasingly complex, and polarized capital city,” said Charles Herring, president of Herring Broadcasting and Wealth TV.

Larry Beasley, Washington Times CEO, sees the partnership as a win-win situation.

“We’re excited to be the official Washington news source for a network that will appeal to Americans concerned about political accountability, smaller government spending and taxation, the protection of liberties and a strong national security capability in America,” Beasley said.

“We have been hard at work transforming our company to be a digital-first news organization.

Our partnership with One America News furthers that goal and our potential reach to millions of viewers.”
