PBS NEWSHOUR

 

The PBS NewsHour continues to provide in-depth analysis of current events with a news summary, live interviews and discussions of domestic and international issues.

 

The PBS NewsHour’s mission — to provide viewers with intelligent, balanced, in-depth reporting and analysis of the most important domestic and international issues of the day — is even more critical today than when the broadcast began more than 40 years ago. The NewsHour team ensures audiences come away with a better understanding of the issues at hand allowing them to draw the most informed conclusions.

 

 

 

Confronting Coronovirus:
A PBS Newshour Special

 

It has been less than three months since reports of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China first made international headlines. With worldwide cases – on every continent except for Antarctica – growing significantly every day, the World Health Organization has now declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

 

“Confronting Coronavirus: A PBS NewsHour Special” will focus on health precautions for individuals and the public-at-large as well as the pandemic’s economic impact in both the United States and globally. The primetime special, to be anchored by managing editor Judy Woodruff, will include interviews with officials; reporting from NewsHour’s bench of special correspondents throughout the world; and a virtual town hall with curated questions from people across America, to be moderated by NewsHour correspondents Amna Nawaz and William Brangham.
