APT picks up distribution of "Nightly Business Report"
American Public Television just announced that it will now distribute Nightly Business Report once again. PBS had distributed the show for the past five years; it was in the NPS from March 2005 through June 2011 and on PBS Plus since this July. "NBR Worldwide Inc. has determined that for various business reasons, APT is a better fit for the distribution of their series," PBS told stations in a memo. On Wednesday (Nov. 16), longtime commercial broadcaster Rick Ray took over as c.e.o. of NBR Worldwide, the show's parent organization, a position formerly held by Mykalai Kontilai.
