A Biblically-based company that began reporting in 1981, WORLD Watch has proven itself to be a positive, uplifting newsource for students and families. Through combining headlines, news briefs, and feature stories that break everything down without the discouraging, disheartening, and sometimes downright twisted and spun aspect of some other news outlets, WORLD Watch offers a refreshingly safe and sound option for families to keep current and learn.
Brian Basham spent 15 years as a news anchor and meteorologist for stations in El Paso, Tucson, Memphis, and finally Charlotte, NC where he currently resides with his wife and children. His industry experience shows, and, together with his team, he ensures that WORLD Watch offers well composed video reports with timely footage and professional editing.
My mom told me to come watch the news. I was very confused at first, because we never watch the news, since it's awful and, sometimes, untruthful. So, I went over to the computer and she turned on WORLD Watch.
At first, I thought it was hokey, but, then, as I watched it more, it stopped seeming so hokey and I liked it. I asked to watch every single segment.
I wanted to watch it every day, but, it was summer and we were busy and sometimes away. So, we would not watch it every day and then not watch it again until we could watch many episodes in one day. Later, I would tell my dad about some of the things I learned.
In each day's broadcast there are several segments. Usually there is a current events story, a crazy, interesting, or humorous story, and a hokey thing about where words and prhases come from or something like that.
Some stories that stood out for me were the ones about Afghanastan, giant rodents, and a snake in the supermarket.
When my mom said it was time for us to write our review, I asked if we could watch more segments instead of reviewing. I also asked if we were still going to get to have WORLD Watch. I like it and want to keep using it.
I would recommend WORLD Watch to families with kids ages 6 and up. It's important to know what's going on the world and interesting to find out new things.
WORLD Watch is not awful like regular news.
