The New York Post Is Coming to Local TV

The New York Post along with Endemol Shine North America and Fox Television Stations are launching Page Six TV based on the New York newspaper’s gossip column and web site.

The daily half-hour show will feature a panel of experts and insiders dishing on entertainment, culture, media, finance, real estate and political news and gossip.

“We’re constantly looking for fresh, day and date strip programming,” said Frank Cicha, svp of Programming for FOX Television Stations. “‘Page 6’ has always had its own point of view, and we expect that to translate very well to the TV show.”

Page Six TV premieres Monday, July 18 for a three week preview on certain Fox-owned stations including WNYW in New York and KTTV in Los Angeles.

“‘Page Six’ has been driving the conversation for decades, and in New York it’s everyone’s first read, whether in the paper or online,” said Jesse Angelo, publisher of the New York Post. “With ‘Page Six TV,’ we’ll explore a new medium and grow our reach. It will be a true New York Post product – smart, funny, biting and entertaining, covering the people and topics that make this city, and the world, tick.”
