Nexstar Media Group has launched a new audio network that aims to bring news reports and other content from its NewsNation brand to radio station listeners.

The NewsNation Audio Network provides ready-to-air audio clips for AM, FM and streaming radio stations and other audio platforms across the country.

“Leveraging the vast newsgathering resources of NewsNation, the new audio service provides radio stations access to NewsNation content,” a Nexstar spokesperson said in a press release on Monday. “The NewsNation Audio Network will offer an ongoing daily service of audio clips featuring coverage from its reporters and breaking news stories from across the nation and around the globe.”

Eligible AM, FM and streaming radio stations and other news audio content distributors can sign up for an account through the NewsNation Audio Network portal by clicking or tapping here. Content from NewsNation can also be delivered through news automation systems like NewsBoss.

Officially established in 2021 as the newest cable news network, NewsNation offers news reports on general interest and political stories during the day, as well as commentary programs like “Cuomo” with Chris Cuomo, “Dan Abrams Live” and “Banfield” with Ashleigh Banfield in prime-time.

Starting in March, NewsNation will also offer a Sunday morning political affairs program called “The Hill Sunday,” hosted by the network’s chief political editor Chris Stirewalt.
