‘NOW on PBS’ Concludes Run This Month

NOW_3-7.jpgFollowing the cancellation of “Worldfocus,” “NOW on PBS” will be the next PBS program to end its run this spring.

“PBS made a strategic decision to reallocate resources as part of a broad effort to reinvigorate public affairs coverage on the network,” writes “NOW” EP and creator John Siceloff in a personal note to viewers.

The news first came of the program’s demise in late 2009 when PBS announced it would launch the new program “Need to Know,” which is set to launch May 7th and will feature co-hosts Jon Meacham and Alison Stewart.

First broadcast in January of 2002, “Now,” which was hosted by David Brancaccio and featured reporting from Maria Hinojosa, has already taped its final show. It will air on April 30th.

The last episode features some highlights from the program’s reporting and has already been posted online. You can see it after the jump.

Gasparino: Journalists “All Bear Responsibility”

gasparino_10-6.jpgAs reporting turns to reflection about the financial collapse, The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz talks to journalists about how no one saw it coming.

Along with the system, CNBC’s Charlie Gasparino says business reporters “all failed,” as well. “What we didn’t understand was that this was building up. We all bear responsibility to a certain extent,” he said.

Kurtz talks to others, like his new boss Marcus Brauchli (formerly of the Wall St. Journal) and PBS’ David Brancaccio.

“We journalists have had a long history with accepting what the smart people hand down to us, especially on complicated stuff,” Brancaccio said.
