Fox Television Stations is saying what markets will be getting the national launch of The Jason Show.

The show debuted in Minneapolis on Fox-owned KMSP in August and the national launch was announced in April.

The show will air nationally starting Monday in the following markets and times: KMSP at 10 a.m., KTTV in Los Angeles at 1 p.m., KDFW in Dallas at 2 p.m. and KSAZ in Phoenix at 2 p.m.

Hosted by KMSP entertainment news anchor and radio host Jason Matheson, “the program moves quickly through segments, ranging from “Hot Dish” to Hollywood, with Jason’s witty take. Each day, Jason will interview celebrities and invite experts into the studio to share their tips on food, fitness and fashion,” says Fox.

“This show is the first of what we hope to be a series of shows developed at our O&O’s,” said evp of Programming and Development, Stephen Brown. “Jason has a dynamic and hilarious personality and we believe it will resonate well beyond the Minneapolis market.”

Matheson re-joined KMSP in early 2015 after working at WCCO for a year. He first worked at KMSP from 2000 until 2013 as producer of the daily entertainment segment The Buzz and then started appearing on Good Day Minnesota doing pop culture and entertainment reports.
