BBC Newshour

Weekdays at 5pm on WEMC

With the world's 24-hour news cycle more intense and unrelenting than ever, there's never been a greater need for a program that cuts through the background noise and provides the definitive take on the big stories of the day, presented by the BBC's global network of correspondents, with all the information one needs to keep up with world events.

"Newshour" delivers an hour of headlines, commentary and reporting from around the world, twice each day, every single day of the year. Winner of the Sony Radio Academy Award in 2008 for best news and current affairs radio show, it presents an authoritative and extended explanation of the day's lead story, compelling reports from the BBC's team of correspondents, and probing interviews with the news makers at the heart of every story.
