ESPNews only has one television program on its schedule: ESPNews. So when ESPN airs something awful like a NASCAR show or a reairing of a baseball game you can just flip over to this channel to get the latest news, scores and rumors.
Plus, you had Jonathan Coachman as an anchor here. The Coach as he was known as in WWE and occasionally on the ESPN programs he works on, is better than most of the anchors out there but for some reason cannot get a regular SportsCenter gig.
Not a lot of news, but it is covered in a better way than SportsCenter.
