Media General, Inc., its digital studio, production and entertainment company, BiteSizeTV, and FOX Television Stations, Inc. (“FOX Television Stations”) announced a deal to renew BiteSizeTV’s Hollywood Today Live® for the 2015 broadcast season.

Hollywood Today Live is an entertainment news and variety show that brings the best and most outrageous news and celebrity access from its street side studios on the corner of Hollywood and Vine to the world. Following a successful test period for six weeks last summer on select FOX Television Stations, Hollywood Today Live will premier September 14, 2015 on FOX Television Stations and Media General stations in major markets, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. The companies are working together to add new partners in additional markets.

The one-hour program will be produced live in BiteSizeTV’s first-of-its-kind digital studios in Hollywood, CA and air five days a week. BiteSizeTV developed Hollywood Today Live digitally, debuting it along with a full lineup of digital programming in January 2014. Since its launch, Hollywood Today Live has welcomed hundreds of celebrities into its studios and has built a community of actors, musicians, agents and behind the camera talents that provide it great depth, content and visibility.

In making the announcement, Robb Richter, Media General’s Chief Digital Officer, said,“As a truly connected-screen company, we are delivering on our promise to create and scale high quality original content that can be consumed through both digital and linear distribution. We developed this show in the digital world, tested it on television and introduced it to agencies and brands during our exclusive, invite-only presentation at the Digital Content NewFronts, and now we are thrilled to partner with FOX Television Stations our own local stations and to connect Hollywood Today Live through all screens.”

Ron Bloom, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BiteSizeTV, commented,“We felt that daytime television needed a new voice for a younger audience, so we decided to develop an entire block of programming digitally and let the television networks and station groups watch us in action. We figured if they saw it, they would get it. And they did. We see Hollywood Today Live as not just a show, not just a franchise, but as a new model.”

“Having the ability to partner with BiteSizeTV and work directly with Media General has given us an opportunity to reinvent the classic development paradigm,” said Stephen Brown, Executive Vice President of Programming for FOX Television Stations.

In addition to its television format, Hollywood Today Live continues to grow its digital audience, producing daily content in multiple lengths and formats that are distributed to the web and mobile, out of home, and in theater.

Viewers can watch Hollywood Today Live every day at BiteSizeTV.com or HollywoodTodayLive.com. A continuous live feed can also be seen at BitesizeTV.com/live. For 2015 broadcast season air times, please check local listings.
