Veteran journalist and one of my media idols Ed Gordon is bringing a news magazine show to Bounce TV’s primetime lineup on September 13 at 10:00 p.m. EST.
According to the show’s website, “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 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 Journalist.
