HOUSTON-Time Warner and Belo Corp. have joined forces to develop the Houston News Channel, a 24-hour broadcast news station covering Houston.

The news will be broadcast live from their planned Westway Park location at Beltway 8 and Equity Drive. Planned for delivery in the summer of 2002, a 30,000-sf, single-story office building will house offices and an all-digital broadcast facility.

Mark Aronsen, senior director of strategic planning and business development for Time Warner says, “Houston is a vibrant Top 10 news market. We will have weather updates every 10 minutes, plus wall-to-wall coverage of the cultural landscapes, events and lives of Houston.”

Time Warner reportedly has been planning the round-the-clock operation for some time and the 150-acre Westway park fit the bill. “Westway Park is perfect for us,” says Aronsen, “because we have access to the entire city- it’s not too far from any particular place and that’s vital for us. We want to be in touch with every geographic area of Houston. This spot at Beltway 8 and Clay Road is perfect for us–location, beauty, image, convenience and sophisticated technological planning.
