"OUTSIDE SOURCE" JOINS NEWS LINEUP

You may have noticed a change to the LPB weekday lineup at 5:00 & 5:30pm.

LPB added BBC World News - Outside Source after CNBC announced they would no longer produce the Nightly Business Report which formally aired at 5:30. 
Outside Source provides an innovative take on global stories, often incorporating social media, news wires, and video feeds to provide a rounded take on the biggest stories of the day and give added context. 


Says host Ros Atkins: "The way people consume news has changed so stories come in different forms, often smaller forms and I think this format is maybe closer to how they're consuming news on their phone, tablet, or PC. So it feels like a reasonable fit with the rest of their lives."

DETAILS:
Outside Source airs Monday-Thursday on LPB-1 5-5:30pm.
BBC World New America slides to 5:30pm Monday- Friday.
