Three of the country’s top television broadcasters have partnered to reach a new generation of news viewers with an innovative and interactive daily program that debuts this fall. RightThisMinute will incorporate the Internet, mobile and social media, citizen journalists and new ways of storytelling to broaden the appeal of traditional television news and information.
The hour-long show will be fresh every weekday, with no repeats. Station group owners Cox Media Group, Raycom Media, Inc., and The E.W. Scripps Company have partnered with MagicDust Television in the creation and ownership of RightThisMinute.
They will launch the program this fall in markets that cover up to 30 percent of American households and expect it to be available for national syndication. RightThisMinute is designed for active viewers who want to stay informed.
