Newsmax, America’s #4 cable news network, is available again on Blue Ridge’s digital tier package, known as Digital Basic, on Channel 174.

One of Pennsylvania’s leading cable and telecom providers focused on smaller cities and towns across the state, Blue Ridge relaunched Newsmax to its subscribers on March 8, 2022.

“Blue Ridge is a highly respected operator in the industry, and we’re pleased that it will once again be delivering Newsmax across their Pennsylvania footprint,” said Andrew Biggers, Newsmax’s Senior Vice President of Content Distribution.

Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy added, “We applaud Blue Ridge for seeing the value Newsmax provides to its customers by returning it to the lineup.”

“At Blue Ridge our customers come first. Providing the channels and content that our customers want while effectively managing our programming costs is important to us. We’ve reached a fair and equitable agreement with Newsmax that returned their programming to our channel lineup on March 8th” said Dave Masenheimer, President of Blue Ridge Communications.

As the #4 cable news network, the #1 independent news network, and a top 25 cable network overall, the relaunch comes as demand for Newsmax TV continues to soar.

Newsmax’s ratings are up over 30% this year, according to Nielsen – the only major news channel to post an increase. All major cable news channels — Fox News, CNN and MSNBC — saw ratings decline over 20% versus last year. CNN’s ratings have collapsed.
