I.N.S. Telenews was an American news program aired on the now defunct DuMont Television Network from 1948 to 1949.

Broadcast history[edit]

Each episode was 15 minutes long, made by International News Service, and aired weekly, each Tuesday at 7:45 pm EST, immediately following Camera Headlines which aired Monday through Friday at 7:30pm.

DuMont's previous national news program The Walter Compton News had premiered on WTTG on June 16, 1947, then on the DuMont network on August 25, 1947, but was off the air by January 1948.[1]

Episode status[edit]

No recordings of I.N.S. Telenews are known to survive. The UCLA Film and Television Archive has earlier Hearst newsreel series, such as Hearst Metrotone News and News of the Day, and a later series of Hearst newsreels syndicated to television called Telenews (1954-1962). Possibly some episodes of I.N.S. Telenews exist in these other collections.
