Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly

Since its debut in 1997, Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly (PBS) has set itself apart from the mainstream media by providing distinctive, cutting-edge news coverage and analysis of national and international events in the ever-changing religious world. Hosted by veteran journalist Bob Abernethy and produced by Thirteen/WNET New York, the acclaimed one-of-a-kind TV show examines religion’s role—and the ethical dimensions—behind top news headlines.

Correspondents Saul Gonzalez, Fred de Sam Lazaro, Tim O'Brien, Deborah Potter, Betty Rollin, Lucky Severson and Judy Valente, along with managing editor Kim Lawton, travel around the nation and the globe to explore how issues of faith, religion and ethics shape both national and international events. Newsmakers, scholars and policy analysts also provide insightful perspectives in roundtable discussions from the show's studio in Washington, DC.

Winner of more than 115 industry awards—including the Sigma Delta Chi, the Gracie Allen, the Chicago TV Fest, New York Festival and CINE Golden Eagle—the program has been hailed by the Religion Newswriters’ Association for setting "a national standard for balanced and fair coverage of religious topics." Phil Mushnick with The New York Post says, "Week after week, R & E similarly delivers, helping restore one’s faith in, of all things, television." And Charles Honey of The Grand Rapids Press writes, "As far as news stories go, there are none better."

To complement the program's weekly broadcast, Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly's website and a companion viewers' guide are offered. The website features individual show transcripts, streaming video of weekly reports, full transcripts of interviews with notable guests, related articles dealing with significant issues in religion and ethics news, a list of related resources and an online pressroom featuring downloadable versions of the program press kit and quarterly newsletter, as well as detailed summaries of individual stories. Audio and video podcasts of the program are also available. The Viewers’ Guide includes essays, discussion questions and resources.
