The Dispatch Printing Company, parent of ONN-TV, announced that the Ohio News Network will cease operations on Aug. 31, 2012.
In a statement released on Thursday, Dispatch officials said the following:
"We launched our 24 hour statewide network in 1997 and have focused on bringing viewers coverage of Ohio news, weather, sports and politics in the most professional manner possible. Changing news consumer habits is the primary contributor to us making this most difficult decision. We thank viewers for the support of ONN over the past 15 years."
