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.

Go behind the scenes with the documentary “The Making of NewsNation” and learn more about the mission of the newscast and 24/7 digital coverage on and the NewsNation Now app.

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.”
