CBS has revealed plans to expand a long-running show from 30 minutes to one hour, TVNewser.com reports. The show is the network’s Sunday morning newsmakers program "Face the Nation."
Bob Schieffer made the announcement on the show Sunday morning, noting, “I can’t remember when I’ve been happier to break a story than I am to tell you this," the story says.
Schieffer said the expanded format “is happening because more and more of you have been turning to ‘Face the Nation’ during this campaign season, so we thank you," the story notes.
The change is set to take place in April. Schieffer said the content of the show won’t change, but the program will "just have more time to do it," the story says.
