Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Linda Ellerbee since its debut, NICK NEWS was the longest-running kids' news show in television history. Each episode, which highlights a different topic, is typically 30 minutes in duration, revealing how current events and contemporary issues affect children. 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. Recent topics include: Liar, Liar Pants on Fire: Lies Parents Tell You; Family Secrets: When Violence Hits Home; and Out of Sight: How Blind Kids See the World.
On Tuesday, December 15, 2015 from 8-9pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon premiered the series finale of NICK NEWS WITH LINDA ELLERBEE. The one-hour series ender, "Hello, I Must Be Going: 25 Years of Nick News With Linda Ellerbee," features a retrospective of the series, highlighting some of the most poignant episodes and discussions while presenting the story and philosophy behind the award-winning series.
