CHICAGO (WLS) -- ABC7 Chicago is proud to announce the launch of its new 24/7 streaming channel. This new channel gives us the ability to serve our audience and our communities like never before.

Our new live stream channels include local TV news. Watch the latest breaking coverage morning to night, 24 hours a day.

Our viewers' busy lives don't always align with local television newscast schedules. ABC7 Chicago's 24/7 stream allows you to get the day's latest news, breaking news updates, special programming and more on your own time and at your own pace, with more live, local streaming newscasts as well as national breaking news live coverage and special television programming.

The app also gives you access to local news from New York, Los Angeles, Houston and Philadelphia and more from our sister stations across America.

We pride ourselves on listening to our audiences and delivering what they want in the most well-thought-out and impactful way. The launch of this 24/7 live and local streaming channel answers the call from our communities while providing more options and ways to view their favorite news.

We have also added two new live, local weekday newscasts that are exclusive to the stream. ABC7's Tanja Babich, Terrell Brown and Val Warner anchor our new 7:00 a.m. newscast along with Roz Varon and Tracy Butler. Cheryl Burton and Rob Elgas anchor our 6:30 p.m. newscast. We also offer time-shifted newscasts throughout the day for those so you can catch up on the latest local news at the best time for you.

In addition, we will continue to expand on our offerings from the ABC 7 I-Team and our data journalists to uncover wrongdoing and to get answers and results for our viewers. This new streaming channel allows us the time to tell those stories in innovative ways and gives us the ability to go more in-depth, share additional insights and provide more perspective. We will also be able to offer even more coverage of important local issues, local events, parades and cultural celebrations. If it's important to our communities, it's important to us. The new channel also all gives the opportunity to showcase special programming like our "Being Blago" docu-series, the true crime caper "Stolen: The Unsolved Theft of a $3,000,000 Violin," our award-winning "Our Chicago" programs and more.
