PBS NewsHour Weekend

This Saturday, September 7 WOSU TV will premiere the new PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND edition.  The PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND, anchored by Hari Sreenivasan, will feature a summary of the day’s national and international news, using renowned experts to offer analysis. Just like the weekly PBS NEWSHOUR, the weekend edition  will contain original and in-depth field reporting.  Check out the NEWSHOUR website; http://www.pbs.org/newshour/weekend/ for a preview of the new program.

Due to the addition of the half hour PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND on Saturday and Sunday evenings at 5:30pm, there will be some changes to the program line-up on each day.  On Saturday afternoons KATIE BROWN WORKSHOP currently airing at 4pm will move to 8:30am, replacing CRAFTING AT THE SPOTTED CANARY.  We’ve aired various encore presentations of all the episodes of CRAFTING AT THE SPOTTED CANARY currently available to us.  It was time to make a schedule change and we hope KATIE BROWN WORKSHOP will be a nice addition to your Saturday mornings.   On Saturday afternoons, ASK THIS OLD HOUSE will now air at 4pm followed by RUDY MAXA’S WORLD and RICK STEVES’ EUROPE.  We just shifted everything up by a half hour so we could bring you the PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND at 5:30pm.

Sunday afternoons took a little more work and will definitely look different.  Our SUNDAY SHOWCASE which currently airs from 3pm-8pm on Sunday afternoons will now air from 2pm-5pm.  This means MARKET WARRIORS currently airing at 2pm will move to 6pm Sunday evening.  This change gives us the opportunity to air  CALL THE MIDWIFE season’s one and two Sunday evenings at 7pm, throughout the fall, leading into the brand new LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX.  In October we will premiere our local magazine style program BROAD & HIGH.  BROAD & HIGH will air on Wednesday evenings and repeat Sunday’s at 5pm just before the PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND at 5:30pm.  We hope you’ll enjoy the addition of quality news programming now seven days a week on WOSU TV.

PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND airs on WOSU TV Saturday and Sunday from 5:30pm-6pm beginning September 7.
