The Day Ahead is a weekday two-hour “new take” on the conventional weekday morning news show aimed at millennial viewers.
Newsy, the Scripps-owned national cable/OTT news network targeted to millennials, has added to its slate of original news programming with The Day Ahead, which it describes as “a new take on the conventional weekday morning news show.” Instead of pundits and talking heads, the show sparks conversation about the day’s biggest headlines and stories that are underreported.
Produced live from Newsy’s Chicago newsroom, The Day Ahead covers the latest U.S. and world news, with host Devan Kaney conducting discussions with leaders across the country. Topics range from the connection between incarceration rates and behavioral illness to the anatomy of gangs and the #MeToo movement.
“We know younger audiences are looking for alternatives to what they see on cable news today,” said Newsy VP of News and Programming Christina Hartman. “They’re looking for substantive information from people who are close to the story as well as close to their audiences. The Day Ahead is real: just-the-facts headlines and thoughtful conversations with real people impacted by the news and policy.”
The two-hour program features regularly occurring segments including “Inside the Beltway,” focusing on headlines from Washington; “Beyond Borders,” reporting international news; and “The Lab,” a rundown of the latest science news.
The Day Ahead airs weekdays from 7 to 9 a.m. ET on Newsy’s live channel, available across the leading cable providers and over-the-top platforms including YouTube TV.
