Two Month Young Newscast Comes On Strong

WorldFocus_11.26.bmp

Just eight weeks into its run, the new nightly news program Worldfocus is coming on strong, beating its nearest head-to-head competitor BBC World News last night. The program, anchored by former CNN and NBC News anchor/correspondent Martin Savidge, airs on PBS stations in various cities, at various times. BBC World News also airs on PBS stations throughout the country and on BBC America on cable.

Last night, in all markets, Worldfocus drew 328,892 viewers, up 16% from its lifetime average of 283,749. BBC World News drew 312,310, down 15% from its 8-week average of 365,592.

The New York-based internationally-focused news program performed even better in the top 30 markets, topping the BBC program on both Monday and Tuesday of this week.

(Note: Because it also airs on cable, BBC World News will have more viewers than listed above which is the average for the airings on PBS stations.)
