Deutsche Welle-Radio plans to launch a prime-time radio news magazine on Monday April 5. DW says Newslink Plus will mark the first time an international broadcaster has entered the daily public radio news market in the U.S. with an hour-long news magazine in nearly a decade.
Expanding on its current 30-minute broadcast, now available worldwide on shortwave,
Newslink Plus will integrate more specialized features into the program to provide
listeners with both news and features from its studios in Bonn, Germany. The program will be taken down live via satellite by Chicago-based distributor WFMT Networks at 9 p.m. Eastern and transmitted on the public radio satellite.
Greg Fitzgerald, DW-Radio's marketing and distribution coordinator in the U.S., said the program is being produced specifically to meet the format needs of public radio.
