Issues and Answers was a once-weekly TV news program that was telecast by the American Broadcasting Company network from 1960 to 1981. The series was distributed to the ABC affiliate stations early on Sunday afternoons for either live broadcast or video taped for later broadcast.
Issues and Answers was ABC-TV's response to such TV programs as NBC-TV's Meet the Press and CBS-TV's Face the Nation. It featured TV reporters interviewing selected newsmakers of the contemporary time period - mostly government officials, both domestic and foreign. Unlike the other networks' news-interview TV programs, which featured newspaper and radio reporters along with TV correspondents, Issues and Answers more commonly featured only ABC News correspondents.
Issues and Answers was canceled in 1981, succeeded by the 60-minute This Week with David Brinkley.
