Premiering October 2019, RETRO REPORT ON PBS provides viewers fresh perspectives on today’s headlines while revealing their unknown connections to the past. Journalist Celeste Headlee and artist Masud Olufani host the weekly one-hour magazine format program as they expose myths and correct the record with historical facts. Each RETRO REPORT ON PBS episode will explore four distinct stories, along with a special weekly segment featuring the wit and wisdom of New Yorker humorist Andy Borowitz.
The hosts will explore how Colin Kaepernick’s bended knee during the national anthem relates to the 1968 Mexico City Olympics protest, why the government spends nearly $50 million a year to care for wild horses, how the modern recycling movement was fueled by a news story about a barge full of garbage in the 1980s, and why U.S. drug approval laws are so strict. Read below for more details and explore the PBS News & Current Events sponsorship package for additional opportunities.
