ECONEWS Television Series
ECONEWS, a project produced by Educational Communications, is a three-time EMMY-nominated television series that covers all environmental issues. ECONEWS currently airs on over 50 cable stations (governmental, educational, and public access channels) in more than 20 states reaching 19 million homes weekly.

Each show is aired approximately 225 times over a four-year period due to multiple plays and reruns. Special documentaries air on the PBS satellite, and selected shows are available on YouTube and various organizations’ websites.

ECONEWS is provided free of charge to television stations via a distribution network of DVDs. Since 1984, each ECONEWS show has been hosted by internationally-acclaimed environmentalist, Nancy Pearlman, who introduces and closes each program and serves as executive producer. Many volunteers and interns have contributed to the creation of more than 600 shows produced to date; if interested, call for details at (310) 559-9160. A comprehensive catalog with highlights is available on request and can also be found in the bi-monthly The Compendium Newsletter.
