Default Return CNN Headline News

Please schedule at least one news channel to feature the day's news in one hour, like CNN Headline News was. or, return to use CNN HN.

You've forced me back to AM radio for my commuting news!!!!!!!!!

A good idea. I would rather have a repeating news channel, rather than the talk stuff from FOX and CNN. That way I know I can get the news of the day anytime I turn to the channel...similar to WINS, WCBS, WBBM, KFWB, etc.

AMEN.

The best source would be something like AP News Radio, or, better yet, a rebroadcast of even a New York City All Newsradio AM , or Chicago or LA.

ALL long form, scheduled news programming with NO headline service makes Sirius far less an attractive news alternative to us junkies than it was before.

In Sirius's defense, CNN Headline News had become entirely too fluff filled, IMHO.

AMEN squared. CNN HLN is one of my favorite TV channels. Bring it back!

A vote for AP's news-wheel channel...it's excellent.
