Ed Gordon Begins Production, Bounce TV's First-Ever Primetime News Magazine

Bounce TV announces that production has begun on Ed Gordon's primetime news magazine show. Bounce TV's first entry into the news magazine format is scheduled to launch Tuesday, September 13 at 10:00 p.m. (ET).

Multiple award-winning and well-respected television journalist Ed Gordon will produce and host the series of one-hour specials in which he'll sit down for revealing interviews with top headline makers, entertainers and pop cultural figures. Ed Gordon will also include investigative pieces, celebrity profiles, current event segments and human interest feature stories.

"From President Obama to Louis Farrakhan, from Beyoncé to O.J. Simpson, Ed is a trusted confidante of African-American newsmakers who define our culture. His insightful reporting and courageous storytelling make him the perfect journalist to shepherd our first news magazine show," said Ri-Karlo Handy, Senior Vice President of Original Programming for Bounce TV.



Gordon commented, "We are going to produce the kind of program I have always wanted to do. We'll provide perspective and give our audience a more complete picture of the major issues. I'll be able to talk one-on-one with the day's newsmakers and celebrities and get them to open up. That's always a challenge and something the audience has come to expect from me. At the same time, we will also tell a wide variety of stories that are rarely presented on television. I'm extremely excited about our new show and thrilled to be joining Bounce TV."

Gordon has been a contributing correspondent for 60 Minutes, The Today Show and Dateline NBC, the host of "News and Notes with Ed Gordon" on NPR, anchorman for BET and is a weekly contributor to the national Steve Harvey Radio Show. He is also the recipient of an NAACP Image Award, as well as the prestigious Journalist of the Year Award from the National Association of Black Journalists.
