    LOS ANGELES (AP) – For 50 years, PBS’ “Washington Week” has gathered a rotating group of reporters to share and discuss information about the nation’s most pressing issues.

    An “oasis” is how Robert Costa describes it. He’s the Washington Post reporter who was named the show’s moderator last April, after the loss of much-admired Gwen Ifill to cancer in November 2016.

    Costa said the show offers analysis of the news, not “snark” or “apocalyptic ventilating” about events.

    The show’s round-table format offers viewers in-depth conversations about complicated topics including health care and foreign policy.

    This Friday’s show will address the mass shooting in Las Vegas and the renewed gun control debate it provoked.
