We were thrilled to be a part of the Cox Institute’s Grady Mobile News Lab certificate ceremony on Wednesday night. The event was held to recognize the students who spent the semester exploring the impact mobile is making on the news industry. Students were challenged to create a story using only a mobile device and publishing on a mobile platform. This semester, two members of NewsON’s team were chosen to coach a group of students as they completed their projects. The end of the semester recognition featured Louis Gump, NewsON CEO, sharing his thoughts on the state of the mobile industry as the keynote speaker.
Dr. Keith Herndon led the students through the Mobile News Lab this semester. As the leader of the Cox Institute, he also partnered with NewsON as we established the first class of NewsON Ambassadors on UGA’s campus. The ambassadors were also recognized during the certificate ceremony for their promotion of NewsON on UGA’s campus.
During the presentation of awards, Dr. Herndon announced the overall winner of the Mobile News Lab. The winners were Denver, Martha, and Reann who were coached by NewsON’s very own Editorial Lead Alex Sembra. Congratulations to the winning team on all of your hard work!
Thank you to the Cox Institute, Dr. Herndon, and student participants for welcoming us and your interest in NewsON as a company. We are very proud of all that the students accomplished this semester, and we are looking forward to seeing where this partnership takes us in the future.

As of November 30th, a change is in place for the NewsON service that will affect eight of our stations. This change applies to both our Mobile Apps and Roku Channel. You will still be able to watch all of these stations during their LIVE newscasts, but previous newscasts are not available for these stations. We anticipate that this is a temporary change, but we do not have an estimated date for restoring on-demand viewing for these stations. We will continue to work as hard as possible to restore these broadcasts to NewsON. As soon as we have more information we will provide an update on this page.
The stations affected by this change are listed below along with a link to their regular schedule of LIVE newscasts:
Chicago, IL: WLS – http://abc7chicago.com/tvlistings/
Fresno, CA: KFSN – http://abc30.com/tvlistings/
Houston, TX: KTRK – http://abc13.com/tvlistings/
Los Angeles, CA: KABC – http://abc7.com/tvlistings/
New York, NY: WABC – http://abc7ny.com/tvlistings/
Philadelphia, PA: WPVI – http://6abc.com/tvlistings/
Raleigh, NC: WTVD – http://abc11.com/tvlistings/
San Francisco, CA: KGO – http://abc7news.com/tvlistings/
We understand the impact of this change and we are actively working to restore on-demand newscasts for these stations as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you can watch short news clips from these stations in the app and the full live newscast is available for viewing during scheduled times.
We appreciate your continued support of NewsON. Please feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.
