CBS Digital Media and CBS News announced plans for a major expansion of CBSNews.com
, creating a 24-hour, multi-platform digital news network, bypassing cable television in favor of the nation's fastest-growing distribution system -- broadband.
The joint announcement was made by Larry Kramer, President, CBS Digital Media, and Andrew
Heyward, President, CBS News.
In so doing, CBS News will move from a primarily television and radio news-based operation to a 24-hour, on-demand news service, available across many platforms, drawing on the experienced, worldwide, award-winning resources of the Division.
