Nickelodeon’s Noggin and The N network will become individual channels later this year. The stations have previous shared air space. Noggin is a commercial-free channel geared toward prechoolers and The N is an advertising-supported station that features shows for teenagers. Having Noggin and The N as two separate channels alongside the Nicktoons network gives its core audiences of pre-schoolers, kids aged six to 11, and tweens/teens their own dedicated 24-hour services, as well as more places for us to cultivate and develop future hits. The stations will separate Dec. 31.
