The networks focused on content produced by RNN, which produced the network's newscasts. Sports coverage featured local high schools and colleges such as Rutgers University, Hofstra University and Princeton University.[3][4]

In 2013, the segment Restaurant Hunter received a New York Emmy Award in the "Entertainment Feature/Segment".[5]

FiOS1 shut down on November 13, 2019 after RNN and Verizon could not come to an agreement on a contract extension.[6] It was announced in September (through a WARN Act notice) that Altice's News 12 would be added to the FiOS lineup beginning in November 4, 2019 as part of a wider deal to add their other news channels, Cheddar and i24 News.[7][8][6] Although FiOS1 was intended to cease operations on November 15, 2019, near its closure, RNN announced via an email to its employees that FiOS1 would close early on November 13 (with its final newscast at 11 p.m.) as many of its employees were let go from their jobs.[9] Immediately after its newscast, the website and Twitter feeds were closed and its Facebook page was deleted.
