Short Takes : MacNeil-Lehrer to Go Bilingual

January 08, 1991|From Times Wire Services

WASHINGTON — The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, saying that the nation's Hispanics are being shut off from most television news programming, announced Monday it will offer a Spanish version of the MacNeil-Lehrer NewsHour.

Beginning next Monday, the Public Broadcasting System program will become the first major national American news program to carry a simultaneous Spanish translation, said CPB President Don Ledwig.

The Spanish version, called NewsHour en Espanol, will be available in 36 cities under a corporation grant of $290,000 to cover a year's cost.
