CBN broadcasts two- to three-minute summaries, which provides the day's five key news stories and some notable sports stories, every half an hour, under the banner Repórter CBN. Six standard hard news strands of the current schedule are CBN Madrugada, CBN Primeiras Noticias, Jornal da CBN, CBN Brasil, Estúdio CBN, and CBN Noite Total. At weekends on a timeframe from 3pm to 9pm, some or all of it is taken up by live commentary of football matches, with the rest of it being covered by Show da Notícia. Other sport shows include Quatro em Campo and CBN Esportes. On weekend lunchtime the news review programme Revista CBN is broadcast. 50 Mais CBN is a human interest programme presented by Alexandre Kalache and Debora Freitas, which was first broadcast in 2015. O Mundo em Meia Hora presents the week's key international stories and how they affect Brazilians. CBN Gerações (CBN Generations) describes itself as providing "stories, trajectories, learning and desires of professionals, intellectuals and artists of different eras..."
