CBS News To Launch ‘CBSN: On Assignment’

CBS News said it would launch a new, limited-run primetime TV series based on reports prepared in the style of its streaming-video news outlet, CBSN. CBSN: On Assignment will air on four consecutive Monday evenings starting July 31 at 10 p.m. ET, and attempt to bring a more on-the-ground perspective to an audience more accustomed to CBS News mainstays like 48 Hours and 60 Minutes.
