Channel One on air personalities: Who’s coming back for 2018-19?

  All smiles and giggles with another year of commercially exploiting schoolchildren under their belts. The primary job of these Channel One yahoos is to sell stuff to teens and preteens.

Buh-Bye, Channel One.

From Jim Metrock: Channel One used to broadcast into June, but they stopped that a few years ago. It was just too much work. The lazy employees at Channel One News have signed off today for the remainder of May, all of June and July and a few weeks of August.  No need to...

Northeastern High School (OH) goes gaga over Channel One.

From Jim Metrock: It’s rare to see high school students participate in a Channel One News stunt.  Usually, students just out of elementary school love to send in their “shout outs” so they can see themselves on the classroom TV screen.

Channel One News ripping off CBS News? Remember when Ch1 promoted Red Bull to kids?

AL school kicks Channel One News where it hurts.

From Jim Metrock: Channel One has always considered the Tuscaloosa County (AL) school district a loyal “Channel One district.”  This district like most in Alabama that still have a trace of Channel One’s presence in its schools, doesn’t care a whit about the Channel One contract.

  From Jim Metrock:  It’s not working out. Channel One News limps into this new school year with an audience problem and a packaging problem. The “good old days” of over 8 million students in its captive audience are gone. Students at schools that still technically show the program, don’t see the program.  Since...

Channel One News: The No News Channel

From Jim Metrock: Channel One News calls themselves a “digital content provider dedicated to encouraging kids to be informed, digitally-savvy global citizens.” This is funny.  Channel One News is no such thing.
