"Dateline" has been a staple of the newsmagazine genre since premiering in 1992. Given how long it's been on the air, the show has an extensive archive of in-depth news stories and investigative journalism. This syndicated version offers viewers another chance to watch some of the show's previous content, serving up real-life mysteries and in-depth investigations from the show's 20-plus years on the air. Cases involving murders and missing people are frequent topics on the series that has won multiple Emmys in the news and documentary category.
Anchored by Lester Holt, "Dateline" is NBC's signature newsmagazine, bringing viewers storytelling at its best by putting the pieces together to present the full picture of real-life events.

Longtime CBS Sunday night staple "60 Minutes" has become synonymous with investigative journalism since its 1968 debut and has spawned genre-specific variations on a number of cable networks, most of which feature repackaged versions of previously aired "60 Minutes" reports. This monthly, sports-focused version on CBS corporate sibling Showtime bucks the repackaging trend by featuring original reporting from veteran journalists, including lead correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi, longtime sports journalist Armen Keteyian and "60 Minutes" correspondents Anderson Cooper, Lara Logan and Scott Pelley. In addition to original segments, which range in content from investigative reports to interviews and profiles of sports figures, episodes feature updated classic sports stories from the "60 Minutes" archive.
As part of its commitment to providing breaking news coverage throughout its daytime schedule, MSNBC has a block of "MSNBC Live" programming throughout the day, with different anchors splitting up the hours.

As part of its attempted reinvention, MSNBC has been moving away from airing opinion-based shows during the day, replacing them with blocks of news programming to boost the network's breaking news coverage. Kate Snow, who has years of experience as a journalist for national networks, anchors this portion of the afternoon block. "MSNBC Live" details the day's developments in news and politics to keep viewers aware of the latest happenings.
