Spectrum News began cablecasting as News 10 Now on November 7, 2003 — we are part of a network of fourteen 24-hour local news channels owned and operated by Charter Communications nationwide. Spectrum News operates from its headquarters building in downtown Syracuse, the historic former New York Central train station. Spectrum News has a huge coverage area, a 15,000+ square mile chunk of Upstate New York, and to cover that well we provide two separate program feeds. Spectrum News for Central and Northern New York covers the metropolitan Syracuse area, Utica and the Mohawk Valley, the Adirondack Tri-Lakes area, plus Watertown and the St. Lawrence Seaway/Canadian border region. Spectrum News for the Southern Tier covers the Binghamton/Oneonta and Elmira/Corning/Hornell areas, plus a portion of Northern Pennsylvania.
Spectrum News has the region’s largest local TV news team, with six regional newsrooms and three satellite newsgathering trucks. Spectrum News features a local weather forecast every 10 minutes. Eight meteorologists operate from our “Weather on the 1s” forecast center, using the very latest weathergathering and severe storm-tracking technology. Spectrum News' hourly program wheel includes local sports twice an hour, 16 hours a day. Source
