About 18 Degrees North
Sponsored by Grace Foods, 18° North is a TV news magazine whose main purpose is to uncover stories related to the Caribbean that have gone unreported or been underreported for too long. If it’s political corruption or a celebration of success, 18 Degrees North is bold, fair and in-depth, all while maintaining the highest level of journalistic standards. 18° North may incite outrage, discomfort, marvel and praise, but at its core, it informs. Our hope is that more information can lead to better decisions, and better decisions can lead to greater prosperity for the Caribbean region and its Diaspora in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

18° North takes its inspiration from CBS’ 60 Minutes and ABC’s Nightline. It is one half hour long, with three video segments each, exploring topics as varied as politics, science, business, health, sports and culture. There are interviews with newsmakers both locally and abroad.

Each season includes13 shows, or the equivalent of 39 video segments. Distribution is on television, radio and on digital platforms in the U.S., Caribbean and Diaspora. 18° North is a production of Global Reporters for the Caribbean.
