CHICAGO (NewsNation) — On Sept. 1, NewsNation will launch a nightly national primetime newscast and 24/7 app and website in the midst of the worst public health crisis America has seen in 100 years. The mission: news absent of bias, absent of opinion.

Where did the idea for NewsNation originate?

“The building of NewsNation, for me, starts in October of last year when we first presented the idea,” Executive Vice President of WGN America Sean Compton explained. “We called it Project Neutral, because we’re so sick of the polarization of news.”
