  • What Channel Are You On?
    When we are out covering a story and someone walks up to us, the number one question we are asked is, “what channel is this going to be on?”, even though over 80% of people now get their news outside of televised broadcast and newspaper print. The internet is how nearly everyone gets their news. We decided on ‘13’ because our news content will be accessible across thirteen separate online ‘channels’, a word that is now much less about the number you tune into on a television receiver and more modernly defined as a social platform that allows individuals and businesses to communicate with one another. We consider Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Youtube, etc to be ‘channels’ and WCTU Cleveland 13 News is accessible on thirteen of them, hence the name ‘Cleveland 13 News’.
