Page Six is finally heading to television. The New York Post in partnership with Endemol Shine North America have launched a new pop culture program, Page Six TV, set to debut Monday, Sept. 18 on Fox Television Stations, including those in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Unlike other syndicated entertainment magazines that generally have a Hollywood focus, Page Six vows to bring a New York vibe, delivering gossip and news from entertainment, culture, the media, finance, real estate and politics.
The team threw a premiere party last night at the still-under construction Moxy Times Square hotel in New York’s garment district.
Page Six TV co-hosts include the veteran TV news and entertainment host John Fugelsang.
“He is wicked smart, wicked funny, does an incredible job juggling his Sirius XM show, his acting career and his standup,” New York Post publisher and CEO Jesse Angelo said of Fugelsang during last night’s party.
Page Six reporter Carlos Greer, Variety TV reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister, and co-host of Bravo’s Fashion Queens Bevy Smith are the other co-hosts who were also in attendance.
In addition to Angelo, and Endemol Shine N.A. chief Cris Abrego, a number of veteran TV newsers appeared at the party as well, most notably Fox Television Stations CEO and Fox News co-president Jack Abernethy, Today show’s Hoda Kotb, and Fox 5 Good Day New York co-host Rosanna Scotto.
“When Rupert Murdoch had the idea for Page Six 40 years ago, it was about what are the secrets that CEOs and their mistresses have, what really is happening behind the velvet rope at amazing nightclubs like this, what are people listening to in the halls of power, and of course the big stories,” Angelo told the party goers last night. “When we went about creating this show we knew when we had to make the same thing.”
