NEW YORK – HBO and Vice Media have announced an expansion of their partnership, including the launch of a daily Vice newscast on the pay cable outlet.
Vice already airs a weekly news show on HBO, a more personal-style look at the world’s hot spots than traditional news outlets. That Friday night program, which airs 14 times a year, will expand to 35 episodes a year over the course of the four-year agreement announced on Thursday.
HBO and Vice offered few details about the daily newscast, other than to say that it will draw on 30 global bureaus and “feature the original on-the-ground reporting viewers expect from Vice.”
Vice also will produce 32 long-form specials for HBO over the next four years, the network said.
