CBS has launched the 10th of ViacomCBS’ 13 local direct-to-consumer streaming news services in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, CBSN Dallas.

KTVT will produce the content for the streaming site.

CBSN New York debuted in December 2018. Since then, the company has rolled out CBSN Local services in Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Denver, Pittsburgh and Chicago.

“We are extremely pleased with the success of our first nine CBSN Local services and look forward to going 10-for-10 with the launch of CBSN Dallas-Fort Worth,” said Peter Dunn, president, CBS Television Stations. “The demand for premium news content on streaming platforms is strong and will be a driver of our future success.”

“The launch of CBSN Dallas-Fort Worth is a landmark event in CBS 11’s history,” said Gary Schneider, president and general manager, KTVT and independent sister station KTXA-TV. “We are excited to be able to make our award-winning local news content available to consumers—both here in North Texas and across the country—whenever and wherever they want to watch. We appreciate the support we have received from CBS Television Stations and CBS Interactive and look forward to using this new platform to grow our business.”

Following today’s launch of CBSN Dallas-Fort Worth, ViacomCBS will continue to roll out CBSN local services in the three remaining markets where the company has a local television news organization: Miami, Sacramento and Baltimore.
