One thought on “WETA to create subsidiary for transfer of PBS NewsHour ownership

  1. This move could open the way for WETA and WNET to merge the weeknight and weekend editions of “Newshour” into a single organization and a single program airing seven nights a week.

    PBS should move the live “Newshour” feeds to prime-time, from 8 to 9 P.M. Eastern.

    America is one of the few countries without a national prime-time newscast on broadcast television; moving “Newshour” to 8 P.M. Eastern time will (at least on the East Coast) rectify this situation.

    It also would open the way for many PBS member stations extend their children’s programming until 7:30 P.M. Eastern time, and to move “Nightly Business Report” to 7:30 P.M. Eastern time.
