Baltimore, M.D., November 7, 2018 – Today, America's longest-running evening business broadcast, "Nightly Business Report – Produced by CNBC," was awarded a 2018 Program Excellence Award by American Public Television (APT), the leading syndicator of high-quality, top-rated programming to the nation's public television stations.
The Program Excellence Award was given to only three programs this year as part of APT's annual Fall Marketplace event. With more than 7,600 programs in rights, APT's catalog is one of the largest in public media. Since 2002, a select number of programs have been honored each year for their originality, execution, creativity, scope of content and effectiveness in reaching audiences and engaging them on local public television stations.
In March of 2018, CNBC's Bill Griffeth was named co-anchor of Nightly Business Report alongside CNBC's Sue Herera, his one-time anchor partner and most previously, college classmate. Sue has been a co-anchor of the program since 2015.
"We are so honored to receive this recognition from American Public Television. Since CNBC began producing Nightly Business Report in 2013, we have remained steadfast in our mission of providing our broad consumer audience with an actionable understanding of the latest business and market news each day," said Nightly Business Report Executive Producer Rich Carolan. "We could not ask for better, more supportive partners than our distribution partner, APT, our presenting partner, WETA, and the entire public television community. We look forward to many more years together," he added.
