BBC Global News has teamed up with VICE Media to launch VICE News This Week, which will air on BBC World News around the globe.
VICE News This Week will feature a compilation of segments from VICE News Tonight. The new show will be broadcast in more than 340 million households outside of North America and the U.K. Starting tomorrow, the program will air in several slots every weekend on BBC World News. It will also be available on VICE owned-and-operated digital channels.
Jim Egan, the CEO of BBC Global News, commented: “I am delighted that we are partnering with VICE to bring VICE News This Week to our global audiences on BBC World News. Complementing our own award-winning international coverage, the program will give our viewers a unique perspective on issues in the United States and around the world.”
Josh Tyrangiel, the executive VP of VICE News, added: “We’re chuffed—I think I used that right—to be partnering with BBC Global News to bring our Peabody and Emmy-winning journalism to hundreds of millions of homes around the globe. The BBC is the gold standard and Vice News is truly honored to be part of its offering.”
