Ohio Cable Net ONN to Cease
Dispatch's statewide news channel signs off end of August

ONN is owned by Dispatch Printing Company, parent of WBNS Columbus and the Columbus Dispatch, which previously reported of ONN's demise.
Said Dispatch in a statement:
"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."
ONN Radio will continue, Dispatch's executives said.
It was never OHIO news, it was always Dispatch news, which is infinitely less interesting. There are plenty of stories out there in the State and they did try, but you got to get out of Columbus to really cover the State, and they never did. Such a shame as it had potential with the right leadership, which never materialized...but what's new?
