Cheddar acquires daily newsletter

Cheddar, the post cable networks company, has announced it has acquired Need2Know, a free daily newsletter with more than 350,000 US subscribers covering business, tech, politics, world events, sports and entertainment, the company said.

Cheddar plans to incorporate the Need 2 Know brand and content into Cheddar Big News, its general news network.

Need2Know is an essential news digest that synthesizes and succinctly explains the day´s top stories. While the tone and scope of the newsletter will remain largely the same, Cheddar will incorporate its original reporting, exclusive interviews and viral social media videos.

Need2Know co-founder and Cheddar Big News anchor Jill Wagner will lead the transition and continue to write for the newsletter.

Cheddar is a post-cable networks company. Its programming is available on Sling TV, Hulu, YouTube TV, Snapchat, fuboTV, Amazon, Twitter, 60% of smart TVs in the US, and Facebook.
