I just read that Sun News is now one years old. When it arrived on the scene, I remember it being called "Fox News North", but I haven't heard much about it since. I certainly haven't tuned in.
So who's watching Sun News? Hardly anybody, it seems.
Data obtained by The Canadian Press from a source at another network and confirmed by independent ratings agency BBM Canada, shows Sun News trailing the pack when “all day” English audience figures — calculated between 2 a.m. and 2 a.m. — were compared for news networks between Aug. 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012.
CBC News Network drew 1.4 per cent of viewers, U.S. news network CNN took 0.9 per cent, CTV News Channel attracted 0.8 per cent and Sun News brought in 0.1 per cent.
Have you ever tuned in to Sun News? What did you think?
