Headline News

HLN (formerly first CNN2, then Headline News, then CNN Headline News) is an American basic cable and satellite televisionchannel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner. The channel is a spin-off of the U.S. Cable News Network.

The channel was originally structured to feature a tightly-formatted, 30-minute newscast that was rebroadcast each half-hour, 24 hours a day, with freshly-updated information that briefly covered various areas of interest (such as national news, sports, entertainment, weather and business). Since 2005, however, its format has increasingly shifted to long-form tabloid-, opinion-, crime-, and entertainment news-related programming. In 2014, the network further re-focused with an emphasis on social media.

As of February 2015, HLN is available to approximately 97,092,000 American households (83.4% of households with at least one television set) in the United States.[1] In March 2015, it became the most distributed cable network in America, when The Weather Channel was dropped from Verizon FiOS. Since the mid-2000s, HLN has been available internationally on cable and satellite in parts of Asia, the Caribbean and South America.
