BBC World News brings in Vice slots

Vice Media and BBC Global News have partnered to bring weekly program Vice News This Week to BBC World News at various slots on the weekend.

The Vice show will appear for the first time this week on April 28. It will also air on Vice owned and operated digital channels.

VICE News This Week is a compilation of segments from VICE News Tonight, the Peabody and Emmy award-winning half-hour nightly newscast from VICE Media and HBO.

Since its inception in October 2016, VICE News Tonight has re-imagined the nightly news, abandoning the anchor and news desk format for a modern approach to news and current affairs with on-the-ground reportage coupled with a diverse approach to storytelling.

The show has featured in-depth coverage from the fight to push back ISIS in Mosul to the chaos and rebirth of societies across the Middle East.

Jim Egan, CEO of BBC Global News said, “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 programme will give our viewers a unique perspective on issues in the United States and around the world.” 

This partnership with BBC is the latest in a series of collaborations that bring Vice content to screens worldwide.

So far, the network has forged distribution partnerships across mobile, digital and linear platforms with A+E Networks, HBO, YouTube, Snapchat, Sky, 20th Century Fox and Canal+.
