I've been aware of Cheddar
- originally an online business news channel aimed at millennials - for a while, but never really paid it much attention in the past as it looked quite amateur. However, it was back on my radar yesterday and it really seems to have upped its game so thought I'd share.
There are now two channels: Cheddar News and Cheddar Business. Cheddar News is kind of a younger CBSN, with more focus on things like technology, health and entertainment. Cheddar Business mainly seems to broadcast from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange with a focus on things of interest to younger adults like tech and cryptocurrency.
The two channels share a breakfast show - Wake Up With Cheddar. Not sure how much of the output is live - some segments are definitely repeated, CBSN-style.
The graphics are simple but slick and the studios are nothing fancy but pretty decent. Cheddar News seems to broadcast mainly from New York and LA, with windowed studios in both.
An odd name for a news service, but the output seems to be quite credible, so worth a watch.
