Eight, Arizona PBS, part of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, is debuting a dramatically expanded pre-prime time news and public affairs focus, featuring in-depth news and analysis covering Arizona, the nation and the world.
Starting today on Eight HD, the new lineup features a concentrated two-and-a-half hour block of news and analysis with BBC World News America, Cronkite News, Arizona Horizon and PBS NewsHour.
The new lineup marks the first major initiative at Eight, Arizona PBS since the Cronkite School assumed operations of the 53-year-old television station in July 2014. According to Cronkite School Dean and University Vice Provost Christopher Callahan, the new lineup provides an important alternative news source for Arizona viewers.
“Arizonans now can easily get a significant block of in-depth regional, national and international news and analysis on one station uninterrupted and commercial free,” Callahan said. “We hope the new lineup will provide an important resource to help keep Arizonans informed on the most important issues at home and around the globe.”
Arizona PBS and Cronkite also are reinventing the Cronkite News digital site to include Arizona Horizon and other public media offerings in addition to Cronkite News reports from Phoenix, Washington and Los Angeles (http://cronkitenewsonline.com/).
New scheduling on Eight, Arizona PBS also includes changes to Charlie Rose and the PBS Kids daytime programming lineup. For complete television listings, visit http://www.azpbs.org/schedule.
Arizona PBS reaches nearly 1.9 million households across 80 percent of the state. With more than 1 million viewers weekly, Eight consistently ranks among the most-viewed public television stations per capita in the country. For more information, visit azpbs.org.
