Noggin Shutting Down After Paramount Layoffs –

Paramount Global’s subscription video on-demand service Noggin is shutting down as a result of a round of layoffs that saw 800 staffers lose their jobs. The app will stop taking on new subscribers and will close later this year. Noggin, which features educational content for kids under 7 and shows from Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr. roster, had about 2.5 million subscribers as of 2019. The programming currently on Noggin will be moved to Paramount+ under the Nick Jr. banner, and current users will have the option to transition to a Paramount+ subscription. This decision is part of a larger corporate reorganization at Paramount that included other layoffs and business changes.
