PBS NewsHour Weekend
- 2017 Seasons
PBS NewsHour Weekend is a fast-paced half-hour that looks into what is going on in the United Staes and in the world. It is composed of segments that begin with short stories of note, and these stories may be political, national and international news, health-related or just general interest. The longest portion of each program is called the Signature segment, where a timely topic is investigated. Interviews with many people involved in the topic are included, and the result is a complete-as-possible look at the subject. For those who want to look further into each story, viewers are directed to the PBS website. The NewsHour team also reports on news that interests them and that they think will then interest their viewers. This results in a varied and interesting show. National as well as international resources are used, and interviews with experts are used to give the viewers a good overview.
