CBS Evening News is Expanding & Becoming More Cord Cutter Friendly




Starting today, CBS News will start a new streaming show called “CBS Evening News – Uncharted”. The new show is a new digital series that aims to explore important topics in American culture, science and the arts. The goal, said Steve Capus, executive editor of CBS News and executive producer of “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley,” is to expand the venues available for the original enterprise journalism that is a key facet of CBS News’ corporate mission. The first installment of “Uncharted” will be a five-part look at mental health in America.

“You and I and most of America grew up with the ‘CBS Evening News’ on televisions in our living rooms,” said Capus in an interview. “Now, in this day and age, we need to reach people in whatever manner we can on whatever platform we can.”

You will be able to access the show through the CBS News app on a wide range of devices including Roku and the Fire TV.

CBS credits “a makeshift army of determined producers” for helping to get the series off the ground. This seems to be a test to see how well it will be recived by viewers. For now there is no new “Uncharted” planned past the current lineup, but Capus said the initiative will be an ongoing one. CBS said that the evening news “is a wonderful 30-minute broadcast,” Capus went on to say “But there’s only so much we can do beyond that.”
