Do you remember being a kid and just hating it when it was time for the news to come on television? There went the cartoons and other shows that were fun for kids.. Of course when many of us were young we could not get but three or four different channels at the most from our old home antennas. There was no such thing as two hundred different options like we have today with satellite or cable service.
The most unappealing thing about having to watch the news programs back then was the fact that they were so boring. It just did not hold much interest for your average fun loving kid. Walter Cronkite was great at what he did, but only if you were old like our parents.
It is true that our news programs today are much more entertaining than in days gone by, but they still probably do not interest for many kids. They are, however, much more interesting for us that have grown up since then and have developed a need to watch the news. It is easy today to actually find yourself enjoying these programs.
Networks like CNN, Fox News, BBC, MSNBC, and even The Weather Channel can be very intriguing. Many people will keep their televisions on these kinds of channels all day long. With the up to the minute reporting that can be sent around the world so quickly today, you can keep current on what might be happening anywhere in the world.
It is also not only the fact that news travels much faster these days, but also that some of the shows and their host are so appealing. The Glenn Beck show that comes on CNN is fun to watch because of the way he reports things. He is outspoken and opinionated about a variety of news worthy topics in a time when people want to cut to the chase and really discuss issues that are important to our world and the state it is is..
Although many of the news programs are about just that, news like business reports, politics and so on, there are other shows like Larry King Live that offer different types of news. Celebrities and other interesting people are highlighted on his program and his interviews are always interesting because of his unique style.
It could be considered a miracle, but even the weather has become infinitely more interesting these days. The Weather Channel not only provides up to minute weather reports, but has a variety of programs and specials that help us understand what creates the weather we have.
