Beginning Saturday, September 25, WTTW will have a new weekend news lineup. Chicago Tonight: Black Voices will move to Saturday evenings at 6:30 pm, immediately following Chicago Tonight: Latino Voices at 6:00 pm. Both WTTW News shows will be repeated on Sundays at 10:00 pm (Black Voices) and 10:30 pm (Latino Voices). The half-hour programs air on WTTW and stream live and on-demand on, Facebook, and YouTubePBS NewsHour Weekend will move to 5:30 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. 

The Voices series provide thoughtful and accurate coverage of current events to inform and engage the public, and create opportunities for real conversation and a platform for different voices and perspectives. Each week, they offer a mix of analysis and features on a wide range of topics, including arts and life, entrepreneurship and innovation, and equity and justice across the sectors of our society and in the Black and Latino communities in Chicago. 

On the last Monday of every month, WTTW News Community Conversations will continue to bring together viewers and community leaders for conversations about the issues affecting Latino and Black Chicagoans, based on topics featured in the shows.
