Bonus Episode: Newsweek Fred Rogers Special

Fred Rogers, known to generations of children as Mister Rogers, built a legacy of compassion and empathy through his decades of children’s programming. In a new Special Edition Issue, Newsweek takes us beyond the neighborhood to discover not only Mister Rogers’ impact on the lives of millions of children, but also the continuing traditions instilling his philosophies of care to today’s generation. This Newsweek Special Edition also gives an inside look into the new film tribute, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, featuring Tom Hanks as everyone’s favorite neighbor.

Tim Baker is editor of this Special Fred Rogers Edition of Newsweek and he’s here today to offer us a behind the scenes look at this magazine which releases on November 5th, 2019.
