“CBS will introduce a live, online broadcast of its ‘Evening News with Katie Couric’ when the program debuts on Sept. 5, the network announced Thursday,” Caroline McCarthy reports for CNET News.
“The online portion of the simulcast, which will be supported by advertisements and offered to Web users for free, will be available to those who register to have access to the content synchronized with their time zone. After its airing, each night’s ‘Evening News’ will be available online in on-demand form. Viewers can watch the entire program, or select reports that interest them,” McCarthy reports.
McCarthy reports, “Two more Web-only features will be available through Apple Computer’s iTunes Music Store as well as on CBS’s Web site: a five-minute segment called ‘Eye to Eye,’ which broadcasts extended interviews with the personalities from that night’s ‘Evening News,’ and ‘Katie Couric’s Notebook,’ a one-minute look into a specific headline or newsmaker. The joint CBS-iTunes content will be available for free as both audio and video podcasts.”
