The Huffington Post is launching the site’s first ever live, weekly, digital primetime program, called “The HuffPost Show.”
President and co-creator of “HuffPost Live” and Huffington Post founding editor Roy Sekoff and “HuffPost Live” host Marc Lamont Hill will co-host the program. The show will look at news stories and mix in commentary, panel discussions, digital videos and celebrity interviews.
“The HuffPost Show” will be shot in front of a studio audience in Los Angeles at 9pmET on Friday nights and will live streamed on The Huffington Post’s homepage. The show is designed to attract social media sharing, as it will be broken into smaller segments to enable easy viewing.
“The Huffington Post has always delivered the news with voice, attitude, and point of view,” said Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief, the Huffington Post Media Group. “Launching a weekly show that offers a satiric look at the week’s top stories was a natural extension of the brand.”
Hill is no stranger to TV news, he served as a liberal commentator on Fox News and frequently appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Sekoff gave us a tour of The Huffington Post offices on an episode of “Cubes,” check it out below:
