Watch out, TMZ. New York Post‘s illustrious gossip column “Page Six” will soon be delivering a TV show that sounds a hell of a lot like yours.
The preview reel has a more polished feel than TMZ Live. Which could be good — or bad, depending.
Starting on Sept. 18, the column that puts fear into the hearts of Hot Felon, Anthony Weiner, J.Lo, the Kardashian family and more, will be hitting your boob tubes each day for 30 minutes. The program, called “Page Six TV,” will be nationally syndicated in 200 markets across the nation.
The host is John Fugelsang (Sirius XM, VH1), with contributors Bevy Smith (Bravo’s Fashion Queens), Elizabeth Wagmeister (Variety) and Carlos Greer (NYP “Page Six”) delivering “in-the-know gossip and news from entertainment, culture, the media, finance, real estate and politics.”
“Page Six TV” will launch on Fox Television Stations in 16 markets, including LA, New York and Chicago.
According to a release, Kay O’Connell (“Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe”) and Michael Bachmann (“Dish Nation”) will be the executive producer; Kathleen Rajsp (ABC’s “The View”) has been named co-executive producer. The team of executive producers also includes Jesse Angelo, publisher of NYP, as well as Michael Weinberg and Rob Smith.
“Page Six” Editor Emily Smith and Deputy Editor Ian Mohr will provide “updates and insight” and “exclusive first-looks” at breaking stories.
Celebs, comedians and newsmakers will also be in the mix.
“There is a lot of excitement and buzz surrounding the show and we are looking forward to extending our reach this fall,” said Angelo. “As an extension of the iconic column, the show will continue to deliver a real insiders perspective on the latest gossip and news to a much broader audience.”
“The half-hour show will cover today’s biggest personalities including high-flying real estate moguls, the hottest sports stars, larger-than-life politicians as well as break celebrity gossip and entertainment news,” states a description of the show.
