GREETINGS FROM ALBANY

Considered New York's crown jewel, historic Albany is in the heart of the Hudson River Valley and boasts cultural and recreational attractions that make it an exciting destination for work and play.
Albany is also home to Capital News 9 - a Time Warner, 24-hour news station that provides 'round-the-clock local news to residents in and around the city. We're in an exciting location - with a fast-paced environment that changes daily.
Capital News 9 launched on October 11, 2002, and is a fully integrated local news organization that operates on a completely digital platform. News 9 offers the Capital Region of New York the only 24/7 news report and uses state of the art fiber, computers, broadcast and transmission technology to bring it into the homes of over 321,000 Time Warner Cable customers.
Unlike our competitors, our video is captured by the crews on the streets and "ingested" into computer servers. Immediately made available for all functions of the news and webcast operation, this type of newscast is completely new to the industry. In fact, only 8 other television stations (all Time Warner owned and operated) in the world have this type of advanced "broadcast" technology.
