Broadcast programming

Broadcast programming is the practice of organizing or ordering (scheduling) of broadcast media shows, typically radio and television, in a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or season-long schedule. Modern broadcasters use broadcast automation to regularly change the scheduling of their shows to build an audience for a new show, retain that audience, or compete with other broadcasters’ shows. Most broadcast television shows are presented weekly in prime time or daily in other dayparts, though exceptions are not rare.
