Brazilian Group Jovem Pan, which owns several radio stations in Brazil, has announced a new partnership with A+E Networks, so that the journalistic program ‘Jornal da Manhã’, leader in terms of live radio streaming, is available on pay TV through History Channel. The agreement became effective on August 3rd, and allows History subscribers to access the show in real time.
