Face the Nation is an American news and public affairs show airing weekly every Sunday on the CBS television network and radio. In 1954 Frank Stanton created the show with it having the title of one of longest existing news in the history of television.
Usually, the programs focus on interviews with prominent American politicians, officials, and authors which is followed by a panel of journalists. The current Moderator for Face the Nation is Margaret Brennan, however during Brennan’s maternity leave the former host John Dickerson filled in for her.
In September 2021 the title was changed to Face the Nation with Margaret Brennan upon her return to the program.
The show broadcasts a full one hour live from its station in the CBS News bureau at 10:30 am eastern time in Washington, DC. Sometimes current stations delay or abbreviate episodes to accommodate sports and local programming.
With an average of three-point five million views, Face the Nation’s audience was the largest of all Sunday airing public affairs shows in 2017. In 2018, NBC competitor Meet the Press, competed closely for the title, winning against it for several months.
Face the Nation begins in a similar manner to its Sunday morning competitors by teasing the segment recapping the previous weeks’ episode and teasing that day’s guests, this is all shown alongside the show’s theme music.
From the start to the end of the first 30 minutes the show usually shows interviews on lawmakers and cabinet or White House officials, prominent politicians, who often respond to that Week’s news and issues.
From the start to the end of the next 30 minutes the show switches to a more debate and discussion-oriented segment which includes interviews with notable authors that have forthcoming books and a rotating cast of panelists for a weekly roundtable discussion.
In May 2020 the weekly roundtable discussion was removed since the producers wanted to increase the show time devoted to interviews.
Different from most of its competitors, Face the Nation only calls columnists and journalists for its panel discussion, while leaving out current and former politicians from providing punditry.
In the case of important breaking news or major news, the show will bring in reports from several CBS news correspondents a day before the interviews, allowing the guests to respond to the latest news.
