NBC Attacks Autism

By Anne Becker -- Broadcasting & Cable, 2/9/2005 1:04:00 PM

Autism will be the subject of a multichannel programming effort from the
NBC News networks the week of Feb. 21.

The disorder, which currently affects about 1.77 million Americans, will
be covered in reports on Today and the Nightly News with Brian Williams,
in addition to coverage on CNBC, MSNBC, NBC's O&Os,
Telemundo, and MSNBC.com.

Today will feature weekly educational reports, culminating in a Feb. 25
segment with NBC Universal Chairman and CEO Bob Wright and his wife
Suzanne, who will discuss their grandson's diagnosis with the disorder
and launch Autism Speaks, a foundation to raise awareness and search
for a cure.

Nightly News will focus on the science, diagnostics and treatment of
autism, while CNBC will launch a five-part series on Feb. 22 focusing on
the economic aspects of the disease and the financial burden it can
place on families.

NBC Universal's 14 O&Os will air an hour special on autism the
weekend of Feb. 19 and 20.

According to NBC, the CDC is announcing that autism is the "fastest
growing serious developmental disability in the United States."
