When liquidation comes to the rescue, this channel’s new host says it’s ‘worse than any drug store’
ABC News — If you were thinking about quitting your job to focus on your children, now is the time to do it.
Channel 30, the new flagship channel of ABC News, is offering a virtual “liquidation” to all of its viewers in an effort to make sure it can continue to serve as a vital outlet for news.
“We don’t think this is going to be a short-term, one-time thing,” said Joe Buck, president and CEO of the ABC.
“This is something that’s going to happen for a long time.
It’s going a long way toward helping us survive.”
Channel 30’s first full-length documentary on the topic will air on Wednesday at 8 p.m. local time.ABC News has reached out to other news networks for comment.
Buck said the channel’s virtual offering is part of a larger strategy to offer viewers more of what they’re interested in.
“I don’t want to sound overly dramatic or anything,” Buck said.
“But this is what we do here.”
