'Nick News' with Linda Ellerbee turns 15













MUMBAI: The Emmy, duPont and Peabody award-winning Nick News with Linda Ellerbee, the longest-running and most-watched kids‘ news show in television history, celebrates 15 years on Nickelodeon in May 2006.


Informed by a philosophy that ignorance is not bliss, that kids deserve and need information about the world and events that shape it, Nick News has covered major world events and other issues that affect kids in a way that no show on television ever has, earning the respect of parents, educators and, most important, kids.



To celebrate this milestone, Nickelodeon will air Nick News with Linda Ellerbee: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow - Celebrating 15 Years of Nick News on 28 May.


The half-hour, commercial free special is a retrospective of 15 of Nick News‘ most compelling stories over the last decade and a half, and a fast-forward to meet some of the players and see what their life is like today, when they‘re grownups. It shows how Nick News -- and kids-have never shied away from talking, in no-nonsense language, about the crucial issues of our time-war, AIDS, terrorism, natural disasters, gay parenting, homelessness, racism, genocide-and how kids have responded by working to change their world for the better.


"No other show gives kids the opportunity to speak their minds on important issues quite like Nick News. Nick News and Linda Ellerbee present stories about issues in a manner that empowers kids and enables them to take action. The show provides a great way for kids to initiate a dialogue with their parents. Nickelodeon is proud that for the past 15 years, we have been able to offer our audience a unique outlet like Nick News to help them do that," said Nickelodeon Television president and MTVN Kids and Family Group head Cyma Zarghami.


"I am the luckiest journalist in television. We tried to teach kids about life. Instead, they taught me what life is all about. I look forward to my continuing education on Nick News," said Nick News host and executive producer Ellerbee.


A sneak peek of Nick News with Linda Ellerbee: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow - Celebrating 15 Years of Nick News will be broadcast on TurboNick, Nickelodeon‘s broadband video service on Nick.com, two weeks before the on-air special.
