Sesame Street to Air on HBO

Sesame Street kicks off its 46th season on Saturday, and for the first time, it will air on HBO, not PBS. Morning Shift talks to Brian Steinberg, senior TV editor for Variety, about the business reasons for the switch to HBO. We’re also joined by Christa Reed of the Chicago parents group the Neighborhood Parents Network to discuss the changes the show has gone through over the years and what Sesame Street’s impact has been.
