Farewell to Newsline
Published on:Tuesday, September 14, 2010 - 11:51
After more than 20 years on the air, RNW's current affairs programme Newsline has come to the end of its productive life cycle and been put to rest.
The English department of Radio Netherlands Worldwide and the Newsline team have always taken pride in providing independent and reliable news and current affairs, but in today’s crowded media landscape we’ve decided to focus our efforts on stories and angles not offered by other English language outlets.
We’ll be providing up-to-date news and background current affairs on our website – which will also offer audio and video. We’re already expanding our coverage of South Asia, while our programmes Earthbeat and The State We’re In will continue to offer in-depth reporting of issues around sustainable development and human rights.
The International Justice website offers comprehensive coverage of international courts and tribunals, including those for former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Cambodia and Lebanon, along with reporting on war crimes, human rights abuses and genocide.
Thank you and goodbye
Our thanks to all those listeners who’ve tuned in over the years and responded to our programmes, and we hope you’ll continue to enjoy what RNW has to offer both online and over the airwaves.
