Loss of Worldfocus is gain for Deutsche Welle on US public television.

Posted: 09 Apr 2010

"WNET chose to shift its production efforts from now on PBS and "Worldfocus" to concentrate on the new Friday night program, 'Need To Know,' which will premiere at 8:30 p.m. on May 7. To strengthen our international news coverage, our Eight World schedule will now include 'Deutsche-Welle's Journal' in place of 'Worldfocus,' and we will add a broadcast of BBC World News to Eight World beginning in May." Nancy Southgate, associate general manager of content for Eight, letter to Arizona Republic, 8 April 2010. Eight is a public television station in Phoenix, Arizona. Its HD channels are Eight HD, Eight Create, and Eight World. The Eight World schedule includes BBC World News Monday through Friday at 5:30 to 6:00 a.m. See previous post about Worldfocus and DW Journal.
