Religion & Ethics Newsweekly replaces The McLaughlin GroupWith the sudden passing of John McLaughlin of The Mclaughlin Group, producers have retired the longstanding program which aired for more than three decades. KUAC will replace the program with Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, a series that provides in-depth coverage of the top religion and ethics stories of the week as well as religious and ethical perspectives on domestic and foreign events and the arts. Hosted by veteran journalist Bob Abernethy, the series brings viewers breaking news through live and taped reports filed by a team of correspondents in the field and interviews with prominent newsmakers.

Our condolences go to the family and friends of John McLaughlin who brought our TV family many years of thought-provoking content.
