- [1998-11-28] Contrary to the previous report here, Daljit is seen in LA (KLCS-58). We are closer
yet to total Daljit saturation; but remember, we will accept nothing short of complete ubiquity. If
you are still not receiving WNFPT in your area, contact your local
PBS stations and demand that it be aired. (Also, be nice
and give them some money.)
- [1998-11-02] World News for Public Television has debuted: new stations, new set, new theme
music, same Daljit!
- [1998-10-30] Here is a press release I received from WNET giving
some general info on the new show and an (apparently partial) list of stations that will be carrying it.
- [1998-10-23] Yay! On the 22nd, ITN announced that over 40 US broadcast stations have signed up to
carry their new version of Daljit's show called World News for Public Television. Previously
World News was only carried on 19 stations, now Daljit will be seen by 38% of American households!
The new show will start on Nov. 2nd. ITN's website has a report
- [1998-10-13] An ITN announcement with WNET is "imminent". Also, WPBA Atlanta, one of the stations
that were to drop ITN, have decided to stick with it. (Thanks to Bill King for this info.)
- ITN's site reports
that a new version of World News will be offered to PBS stations starting Nov. 2. Another
source says that WNET anticipates carrying it and hopes that other stations will follow, but
don't know for sure.
- The Media Talk section of the August 3 New York Times reports that
PBS stations are dropping World News. The article focuses on WLIW and
WNET, two New York PBS stations that are, respectively, the lead station of the Program
Resource Group (PRG -- a group of secondary PBS stations,) and the lead station of the primary
PBS stations. WLIW, which has carried ITN, is replacing it with the BBC World,
while WNET is trying to get ITN to produce one minute international "news
breaks" for them featuring Daljit. The actions of these stations will affect programming seen
on other PBS stations around the nation. I suggest you contact your local PBS station and
let them know how you feel. ITN's site
has a list of some email addresses for stations that carry them.
