Share Article

Short video segments report the events that will happen in the forthcoming week.

Newsy today announces an agreement with U.K.-based FENS Information to form an exciting and unique venture in news broadcasting.

Called Look Ahead TV, the two-minute videos will turn their back on traditional retrospective reporting to tell viewers what WILL be happening.

To produce Look Ahead TV, Newsy has teamed up with the international diary news service FENS Information, which supplies hundreds of newsrooms across the globe with their news agendas. The FENS service is also used by governments and multinationals to help them prepare their own agendas.

"For 25 years, we have been supplying key decision makers with their news agendas,” explains FENS’ CEO Tom Arms. “Look Ahead TV will open this valuable information to the general public. No longer will they be mere spectators of what has happened. Now they can participate more directly because they will know what WILL happen."

Look Ahead TV will start with three segments focusing on the FENS highlights in entertainment, business and general world events. For instance, this week's entertainment pilot will range from Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in New York to Aretha Franklin's 70th birthday. The business report will include a potential $303 million bill for the New York Mets and an important German political debate on the euro. The general world report will range from the Pope's historic visit to Mexico and Cuba to a clown convention in San Diego.
