Christian Vera’s national reach is growing right this minute…
Syndicated talk show RightThisMinute, featuring the Mexican television personality as one of its hosts, has expanded its clearance to 91 percent of the country, thanks to new station carriage with Fox stations in Top 10 markets.
Syndicated by MGM Television and produced by MagicDust Television, in partnership with Cox Media Group, Raycom Media and E.W. Scripps, the show will launch season two in a five-day-a-week strip on September 8, and also supply a weekend best-of show to 182 stations.
RightThisMinute shows fast-rising web videos and reports the stories behind those videos in two daily half-hour shows. It rolled out nationally in its third season last year, after two years with coverage of only about 30 percent of the country that jumped to 65 percent last year. The Fox deal will air the show in late morning and afternoon time periods in the top 10 markets.
“A show designed for active viewers who want to stay informed. It is a fast-paced roundup of the most timely, engaging, and explosive stories; as well as, the stories that viewers determine are of most interest,” says Vera of the show. “The most-incredible video, the stories that make people stop and think, compelling human-condition stories, and the next day’s popular ‘water cooler’ stories will be covered in every ‘RightThisMinute’ episode.”
“RightThisMinute has found solid footing in the marketplace and demand has exceeded our expectations,”said Bryan.” The series fills a void with its unique and buzz-worthy content and we look forward to another successful season.”
In addition to Vera, who previously appeared on E! News Now, Mun2, SiTv and CNN En Español, the show featuresBeth Troutman, Nick Calderone, Gayle Bass and new host Oli Pettigrew.
