Nightly Business Report to Return to Previous Timeslot

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

 

Paul Kangas & Susie GharibAfter moving Nightly Business Report to 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 1, WTVP will return it to its previous timeslot of 5:30 p.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 13. The move was precipitated by changes in the BBC World News schedule and the desire of WTVP to bring the most up-to-date news from abroad to its viewers.

“The decision was made before the financial climate in the United States and the world deteriorated,” according to Linda Miller, WTVP Vice President of Programming. “But as the situation began to unfold, it was clear that viewers were anxious to have breaking news from their most trusted sources – from Paul Kangas, Susie Gharib and the team at NBR. Viewers wanted the broadcast at 5:30, the time the show feeds on a daily basis, instead of at a later hour.”

WTVP appreciates the calls and messages from loyal Nightly Business Report watchers, and is happy that the change can be accommodated. “We listen to what our viewers have to say. It’s important that we give them every opportunity to stay abreast of rapidly changing events and critical decisions being made that effect us all,” said Miller.
