CBSN is CBS’s 24/7 free streaming news channel. In the past the content created for CBSN was content you would not see on CBS.

Now CBS has announced that the four “CBSN: On Assignment” shows will air on CBS in primetime giving the CBSN network exposer to new possible viewers.

CBSN: On Assignment will take viewers on a thought-provoking journey featuring compelling stories from around the globe. The stories are intense, interesting and immersive,” said Executive Producer Mosheh Oinounou.

“This is an opportunity to showcase the voices and original storytelling from CBSN to an entirely new audience,” said Nancy Lane, senior executive producer for CBS News Digital. “Our long-form programming enhances our live, anchored coverage throughout the day.”
