DirecTV said Saturday that it has informed OAN’s owner, Herring Networks. Inc., that it will no longer carry the channel when their contract expires. The spokesman would not say when that is, but Bloomberg News, which first reported the development on Friday, said it expires in early April. Herring Networks did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
