CBS News To Debut New Daily Streaming Politics Show ‘America Decides’

April 24, 2023

CBS is debuting a revamped daily streaming politics show American Decides, which will feature a team of the network anchors and correspondents.

Set to debut on May 1, America Decides will feature Robert Costa, Caitlin Huey-Burns, Major Garrett, Ed O’Keefe, Nikole Killion, Scott MacFarlane, Weijia Jiang and Nancy Cordes. The show will stream on CBS News Streaming at 5 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, re-airing at 6 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. ET. That slot is currently occupied by Red & Blue, which launched six years ago.

Robert Gifford, CBS News vice president and managing editor, said in a statement that they “aim to bring a fresh perspective that will leave viewers more informed, offering facts without opinion, and allow newsmakers to speak in a venue that goes beyond soundbites.”
