PBS NewsHour Enters Partnership With The Atlantic Magazine

The Atlantic magazine is teaming up with PBS’s “NewsHour” in a pact that will produce the first regular broadcast adaptation rof reporting from the periodical, which focuses on long-form journalism and ideas.

The PBS program and  the magazine will collaborate to produce TV segments based on the magazine’s cover and feature stories for air on the NewsHour and to run online at PBS.org/NewsHour and TheAtlantic.com. Lincoln Financial is the advertising launch partner for the series.

Tonight’s report is from NewsHour co-anchor Judy Woodruff and Atlantic national correspondent Hanna Rosin, whose cover story leads the magazine’s current newsstand issue.  The story focuses on how the practice of “sexting” among teenagers has impacted one community in rural Virginia, and studies the implications of the growing trend for families, schools, and law enforcement.

“We’re excited to see our stories brought to broadcast, and honored to be working with the NewsHour to make it happen,” says James Bennet, The Atlantic’s President and Editor-in-Chief, in a prepared statement. “No one in the business cares more about journalistic integrity and depth.”

The PBS mainstay is wrapping up a full  year under co-anchors Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff. Sara Just, a veteran of ABC News, joined the program as its executive producer earlier this year.
