NewsNation is an American subscription television network owned by the Nexstar Media Group, and is the company’s only wholly-owned, national cable-originated television channel. The channel runs a straight-news format for 24 hours on weekdays and eight hours on weekends, as well as entertainment programming (consisting of comedy and drama series, and theatrical feature films) taking up almost the entire weekend schedule. Known for most of its history as Superstation WGN before becoming WGN America in 2008, it relaunched on March 1, 2021 as a cable news network named after its flagship news program. The channel’s relaunch came as part of a planned expansion of its news programming.

In September 2018, the channel, then WGN America, was received by approximately 80 million households that subscribed to a pay television service throughout the United States (or 62.7% of households with at least one television set).
