On these networks, the prospect of Trump being inaugurated for a second term on January 20 appears to be very much alive. Of the two insurgent networks, OANN is the least-watched and the most extreme. The network was founded in 2013 by California businessman Robert Herring, and was explicitly intended to serve as a far-right alternative to Fox. OANN does not release its ratings figures publicly, a tell-tale sign that its viewer numbers are low, but Herring has claimed the network received a big bounce after the election.
