The Black News Channel, a Tallahassee-based national television network, has launched a new streaming service, BNC GO. It is designed to attract and inform the millennial and Gen-Z audiences in the Black and Brown communities.
The network describes BNC GO as fast-paced, informative and entertaining. BNC GO offers media coverage every weekday from 6 a.m. to midnight ET. BNC GO broadcasts news, entertainment and everything in between. It streams 24/7 to prominent platforms, including Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Samsung, Vizio, Pluto, Tubi and others.
BNC GO’s 18-hour media coverage includes “The Moring Hype” from 6 a.m. to noon hosted by Michelle Fisher; “The Midday Jolt” from noon to 6 p.m. hosted by Marcel Clarke; and “After Six” from 6 p.m. to midnight hosted by Jimmy Marlow.
Fisher, host of BNC GO’s “Morning Hype,” loves BNC GO’s content.
“I love that we cover so many different topics including the day’s headline, politics, sports, entertainment, travel, health, and tech,” Fisher said in an interview. “We listen to what’s happening everywhere and what’s trending to guide us in our storytelling. We have a pulse on what people are talking about and what people are interested in. That’s how we build our broadcast.”
According to BNC, BNC and BNC GO can be accessed through more than 250 million distribution points via agreements in place with most major cable and satellite providers, OTT platforms and internet-connected devices.
Marcel Clarke, host of BNC GO’s “Midday Jolt,” says BNC GO offers accessible, authentic content.
“We bring you what you need to know in the quickest, most informative way,” Clarke said. “We inform and tell the truth to our millennial and Gen-Z viewers. Many people tune in to social media platforms for news, and all the content on those platforms isn’t always the truth. We broadcast authentic information the right way. BNC GO is quick, easy to use, and accessible. You can watch us on your phone while on the bus, or in a Uber, or walking to class.”
According to the network, BNC is the nation’s fastest-growing news network, providing 24-7 multiplatform content that illuminates and celebrates Black and Brown communities.
Alexys Lynn, a graduate of FAMU’s School of Journalism & Graphic Communication and a production assistant at BNC, looks forward to BNC GO’s continued growth.
“I’ve been at BNC for a year and four months now, and they continue to amaze me,” Lynn said. “At BNC, we’re expanding by learning and doing something new every day. I want BNC GO to blow up and become the main news outlet for millennials. BNC GO is already big; however, I want it to continue to grow and reach more viewers and platforms.”
