CBS News is the news channel of American radio and television corporation CBS (Columbian Broadcasting System). CBS News Radio provides hourly news bulletins for myriads of radio services. The service features news regarding the world, politics, sports, entertainment, health, technology, science, and crime. It also runs CBSN’s 24-hour digital news network and CBS Newspath.
It started operating back in 1927. Its chief, William S. Paley, appointed journalist Paul W. White as an editor of this channel in 1930. In 1933 White assumed the office of general manager in charge and vice president and helped raise CBS news to horizons of success. In 1935, it started its European operations. And in 1941 CBS Television emerged as the pioneer TV station in New York airing only two programs on weekdays. It had been a pivotal service in world war II news coverage.
As per critical recent developments, it signed a content-sharing contract with BBC News in 2017.
