DirecTV to drop OAN in blow to conservative, pro-Trump news network
The network has been airing on DirecTV and AT&T since 2017.
Satellite broadcaster DirecTV has announced plans to drop the One America News (OAN) channel in a blow to the conservative, unabashedly pro-Donald Trump news network.
"We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires," a DirecTV spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
AT&T, which has a 70% stake in DirecTV, entered into a deal with Herring Networks Inc to air OAN in 2017, and DirecTV began carrying the network later that year.
OAN did not offer an immediate reaction to the announcement.
