DESCRIPTION:
(from Nickelodeon's press release, December 2015) Commemorating the unrivaled run of the iconic Nick News with Linda Ellerbee, Nickelodeon will present "Hello, I Must Be Going: 25 Years of Nick News with Linda Ellerbee," a retrospective series finale documenting the longest-running kids' news show in television history. Ellerbee, who has announced her retirement, will highlight some of Nick News' most poignant episodes and discussions, while presenting the story and philosophy behind the award-winning series. The hour-long special will air Tuesday, Dec. 15, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. "For the past 25 years, few people have served kids better than Linda Ellerbee and her staff at Nick News," said Cyma Zarghami, President, Viacom Kids and Family Group. "She was a trailblazer in network news when she joined Nickelodeon, and she has been a pioneer ever since in her ability to respect the intelligence of our audiences and never once speak down to them." Zarghami added, "She has helped multiple generations of kids understand the issues of the day, and she helped a lot of parents navigate how to talk about the tough topics, as well. We are deeply grateful for her immeasurable contributions to Nickelodeon, and we wish her all the best in her retirement." Initially created as a news special to help kids understand the U.S. War with Iraq in the early 1990s, Nick News immediately went on to play a vital, continuing role in kids' education of current events, from covering major world events like 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing and Hurricane Katrina, to shedding light on controversial issues such as AIDS, sexuality and racism.
