Sun News Network officially off the air
Sun News Network is off the air. The struggling TV station shut down at 5am this morning after negotiations to sell the troubled television channel were unsuccessful.
The plug was pulled on the channel after just four years on the air, a move that has claimed 150 jobs, as well as work for 50 freelancers.
The network took to the airwaves back in April 2011 and was dubbed ‘ Fox News North ‘ at the time.
Its supporters blamed the CRTC for not allowing the network the same access enjoyed by news channels operated by CBC and CTV.
