i24NEWS’ weekday programming lineup "will now deliver a rich selection of both global and domestic news, including the in-depth international and Middle Eastern news coverage that is the trademark of i24NEWS and a wide array of fast-paced, non-partisan national breaking and headline news," the network said.

This expansion into US news is made possible through Altice USA’s recent acquisition of Cheddar  and its existing partnership with the network’s established reporters, studios and newsgathering operations.

"i24NEWS has always been a destination for hard-hitting international news, and we are excited to expand the network’s focus to include top national news stories in the US," said Frank Melloul, founder and CEO of i24NEWS, adding that the network "is now delivering the very best in both national and international news, making it easier for our viewers to stay informed on the current events in the US and across the world.”

“i24NEWS is now our brand for international and national news,” added Jon Steinberg, president of Altice News. “Altice News now has three leading brands: i24NEWS for global news, News 12 for hyperlocal coverage, and Cheddar for business news. We are committed and focused on live video news in all categories.”
