“This is great news for Verizon, but more importantly for our Lower Hudson Valley subscribers,” said Michelle Webb, general manager of Verizon’s FiOS1 News operation.  “Verizon FiOS1 News is the most continually updated hyper-local news channel in the area. Like our channels in the other markets, we have news, weather and traffic, and feature stories that spotlight local communities, residents and businesses.” 

Webb noted that the channel has its own website at FiOS1 News Now, which airs weekdays at 5 p. m., is also live streamed on the FiOS1 News website.

As with the other FiOS1 news channels, Verizon FiOS1 News Lower Hudson Valley is partnering with Rye, New York-based RNN to produce the daily newscasts and feature programs.

The Business Council of Westchester looks forward to working with – and watching – FiOS1 News Lower Hudson Valley.”
