YouTube debutes its new evening news show

On Tuesday, YouTube debuted its new evening news show, YouTube Nation, which functions as a five-minute round-up of the best videos of the day. Highlighted in the first few shows were Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s new web series, the guy who’s dancing his way across China, and the follow-up to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared. 

A new daily series that shows off the best of YouTube is launching Tuesday, as Variety first reported last week. Produced by DreamWorks Animation and sponsored by Verizon, “YouTube Nation” will be published on the web giant’s Spotlight channel every weekday at 6 p.m. PT. The channel has 19 million subscribers. DWA is overseeing production while YouTube’s teams are providing support including managing sales and marketing. Backed by DWA CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and YouTube content czar Robert Kyncl, the show will be shot in Ultra HD.
