"World News Tonight" to Become the First Evening Newscast to Be Broadcast Live to the West Coast
Reports from "World News Tonight" to Be Available Throughout the Day; Live Afternoon Webcast to Be Anchored by Vargas and Woodruff
"World News Tonight" will also significantly increase its presence on ABCNEWS.com with distinct content programmed specifically for that Internet audience. The redesigned "World News Tonight" section at wnt.abcnews.com will provide:
* In a first, "World News Tonight" correspondents' and anchors' reporting will be available throughout the day, even before the broadcast. * Interactive presentations, additional video and in-depth information relating to stories aired or airing on "World News Tonight," in the "Broadcast Plus" portion of the site. * Extended-play versions of select, high-impact anchor packages and special reports. * Unaired portions of interviews with newsmakers and ABC News contributors. * Round-the-clock updates on the latest news. * The Blue Sheet -- the broadcast's daily blog, with contributions from Vargas, Woodruff and WNT producers and writers, stimulating conversation, provoking thought and demystifying the process of putting the broadcast together.
"Now 'World News Tonight' will always be on," said Jon Banner, executive producer of "World News Tonight." "We are revolutionizing the way the evening news is delivered -- the broadcast will no longer be confined to the evening, no longer limited to television, and now will be live to the West Coast."moreless
