Produced by CNBC, NIGHTLY BUSINESS REPORT, television’s longest-running evening business-news broadcast, featuring in-depth reporting and analysis of the day’s leading financial stories will come to an end. CNBC will cease production of NBR as of the end of this year. The final episode will be air Friday, December 27, 2019.
Looking back at Nightly Business Report, the series was created in 1979 and produced through March 2013 under the direction of Linda O’Bryon, WPBT’s news director at the time, with Paul Kangas as the original anchor. The series launched on PTV stations nationwide through APT, with each station paying a portion of the program’s costs. For a time in the early 2000s, PBS provided partial funding and distribution for the series as a part of the PBS National Program Service. In 2013, CNBC bought the series and provided the necessary financial and editorial support to continue delivering the show for the past six years fully-funded through APT Exchange. That brings us to today’s award-winning program with co-anchors Bill Griffeth and Sue Herera, presented by WETA.
WSKG will air BBC World News Outside Source beginning Thursday, January 2, 2020 at 6:30 pm. This series will air Mondays to Thursdays. On Fridays, BBC World News Today will air at 6:30 pm.
