Here Are the Details on BuzzFeed News’ Livestreamed Twitter Morning News Show

AM to DM will launch Sept. 25

BuzzFeed News released more details on the livestreamed morning news show it is launching on Twitter.

The social network announced during its Digital Content NewFronts presentation in May that BuzzFeed News would create a new morning news show focused on “fire tweets” and featuring reporters and special guests.

It was revealed Thursday that the show will be called AM to DM, and it will launch Sept. 25, produced and directed by BuzzFeed.

The livestream will be available free-of-charge to logged-in and logged-out Twitter users weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET on @BuzzFeedNews.

BuzzFeed said reporters, editors and special guests will discuss the day’s top stories, “bringing headlines from BuzzFeed News reporters all over the world: everyday Twitter heroes who have blown up on social media, giants of the entertainment industry and what they mean for your can’t-miss TV shows and movies and what exactly our elected officials are up to in Washington.”

AM to DM will be hosted by BuzzFeed Books editor Isaac Fitzgerald and BuzzFeed News executive editor of culture Saeed Jones. CNN, Fox and HuffPost veteran Cindy Vanegas-Gesuale will produce.

BuzzFeed said the show will have a dedicated staff, which will be overseen by editors from BuzzFeed News.

On the business side, the presenting sponsor of AM to DM will be Wendy’s, and initial sponsors include Bank of America and Toyota, with other sponsors expected to emerge “in the coming weeks.” David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
