Allen Media Group's Local Now — the leading free streaming service for local news and entertainment in America — announced its partnership with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevada's largest news organization. The partnership introduces two new channels to the Local Now platform — "7@7" and "RJ Sports".

"'7@7' newscasts and 'RJ Sports' coverage, powered by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, is the easiest way to catch up on the latest Las Vegas news and sports events," said Jim Prather, executive director of programming. "We are proud to be the first newspaper to deliver a continuous stream of video content to Local Now. Our partnership with Local Now gives us a comprehensive national and local platform for users interested in one of America's most dynamic news cities."

"Free-streaming local news is what Local Now does best," and the addition of these two local channels from the Las Vegas Review-Journal strengthens our local coverage in Las Vegas and its surrounding communities," said Byron Allen, founder, chairman and CEO of Allen Media Group — parent company of Local Now.

"7@7" delivers the Review-Journal's reporting and visuals in a fast-paced, concise format. That's why it's the fastest-growing newscast in Las Vegas," said Review-Journal Executive Editor and Senior Vice President for News Glenn Cook. "We have more journalists than any other Nevada news organization, and that allows '7@7' as well as 'RJ Sports' to have an exclusively local focus. It's a perfect fit for Local Now."
