Nick News With Linda Ellerbee

Nick News With Linda Ellerbee

Spring 2010 Television
Ages: 6 - 14 yrs.
Network: Nickelodeon
To some kids, news is that old fashioned way of conveying information that people used before Facebook and Twitter.

For parents who want to give kids real facts from a trusted news source, it's hard to beat Nick News with Linda Ellerbee. There's no avoiding the tough topics, there's no dumbing down of information. It's just kids talking to and for other kids. Ellerbee, in her high tops and jeans, is an honorary adolescent and trusted ally. Her trademark shows are rooted in the sensitive approach to discussing difficult subjects, and the approachable context in which the information is delivered.

Whether it's a show about real teens in real rehab facilities, teens working to ease racial tensions among their peers, or those working for quality and equality in education, Ellerbee's winning formula continues.
