Sun News Network to Shut Down Permanently: Sources
Sun News Network is about to sign off, permanently. CBC News has learned that the cable news television channel will shut down early tomorrow.
The network began broadcasting in 2011, launching a right-of-centre programming schedule.
It has had a constant challenge attracting viewers.
Its supporters blamed the CRTC for not giving it the same access enjoyed by news channels operated by CBC and CTV.
Almost 200 people are employed at Sun News.
