CNBC’s “Nightly Business Report” wins award
CNBC’s “Nightly Business Report” has been awarded a 2018 Program Excellence Award by American Public Television.
The Program Excellence Award was given to only three programs this year as part of APT’s annual Fall Marketplace event. With more than 7,600 programs in rights, APT’s catalog is one of the largest in public media.
Since 2002, a select number of programs have been honored each year for their originality, execution, creativity, scope of content and effectiveness in reaching audiences and engaging them on local public television stations.
In March 2018, CNBC’s Bill Griffeth was named co-anchor of “Nightly Business Report” alongside CNBC’s Sue Herera, his one-time anchor partner and most previously, college classmate. Herera has been a co-anchor of the program since 2015.
“Since CNBC began producing ‘Nightly Business Report’ in 2013, we have remained steadfast in our mission of providing our broad consumer audience with an actionable understanding of the latest business and market news each day,” said executive producer Rich Carolan in a statement. “We could not ask for better, more supportive partners than our distribution partner, APT, our presenting partner, WETA, and the entire public television community.”
