‘NewsHour’ Gets $3.5 Million Grant to Cover Global Health Issues

Dec 1, 2008  •  Post A Comment

“The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer” has received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to create a “NewsHour” production unit devoted to global health issues.
The three-year, $3.5 million grant went to public broadcaster WETA, the program’s co-producer.
The grant will allow “NewsHour” correspondents to travel the world, producing 40 to 50 documentary style reports to be aired on the PBS broadcast and distributed via the show’s digital platforms.
“NewsHour” currently has a domestic health and health policy reporting unit, which is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
“Health stories and international reporting have always been important to ‘The NewsHour’ and our audience,” Linda Winslow, executive producer of “The NewsHour,” said in a statement. “Thanks to the support of the Gates Foundation, we now have the resources to give global health the attention it deserves.”
