WCVW PBS Increases Kids Programming; Upgrades Charlie Rose Timeslot
Shows like Super Why!, Word World, Curious George and Sid the Science Kid increase the odds that all children in our community succeed in school and in life. That’s one of the reasons as to why WCVW PBS is increasing its PBS KIDS line up. Beginning Monday, May 7 PBS KIDS shows will air starting at 9:00 a.m. and continue throughout the day until 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
PBS KIDS programs are designed to help kids explore the worlds of literacy, language, math, science and the arts by providing an environment for children to stimulate their curiosity, encourage interaction and foster their imagination.
The new schedule change on WCVW PBS also improves the encore timeslot for the popular news show, Charlie Rose which moves from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. Acclaimed interviewer and broadcast journalist Charlie Rose engages America’s best thinkers, writers, politicians, athletes, entertainers, business leaders, scientists and other newsmakers in one-on-one interviews and roundtable discussions.
“These changes reflect our goal to use the power of media to educate, entertain and inspire and are consistent with our commitment to lifelong learning,” explains Janet Campbell, Director of Television Programming.
