Our Commitment to Local News

Our exclusive local programming attracts highly engaged viewers and keeps them tuning in with innovative and informative hyperlocal content. We differentiate ourselves from our competitors by bolstering our ties within the communities we serve. Many of our journalists live in the vicinity of the neighborhoods they report on so that our coverage reflects and is informed by the issues and community concerns that matter most to our viewers day-to-day. Coverage includes local news, weather, traffic, education, politics, community events, sports, housing, public safety and more. Charter customers can rely on us 24/7 for the most accurate news they need.

Our presence in our communities goes beyond our coverage. The Spectrum Networks team is dedicated to being a meaningful part of the communities we serve. In 2019, Spectrum Networks talent participated in events ranging from food festivals to career days at local elementary schools. Whether it’s a tree-lighting in December or Fiesta in San Antonio in April, we’re in our communities no matter the season.
