Sun News Newtork to go off the air permanently: CBC

Sun News Network is about to sign off, permanently. CBC News has learned that the cable news television channel will shut down early Friday.
The network began broadcasting in April 2011, launching a right-of-centre programming schedule, but 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.
The federal broadcast regulator denied Sun News a guaranteed spot on basic cable TV packages in August  2013.
Almost 200 people are employed at Sun News.
