‘Dish Nation’ Renewed on Fox Stations Through 2019

Daily First-Run Strip Confirmed for Two More Seasons

Fox Television Stations has renewed daily half-hour entertainment magazine “Dish Nation” through 2019. Debuting in July 2011 on the Fox Stations, “Dish Nation” features celebrity news and humorous commentary on pop culture presented by radio personalities from across the country. “Dish Nation’s” radio teams include Atlanta’s “Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” heard locally on Atlanta’s WHTA, and “Heidi & Frank,” heard weekdays on KLOS in Los Angeles.

“Over the last five years, ‘Dish Nation’ has found its place serving a younger audience on station lineups,” said Stephen Brown, Executive Vice President of Programming and development for Fox Television Stations. “This year, we are moving toward a live format and anticipate it will help the program to stay on for years to come.”

“Dish Nation” is produced by Fox Television Stations and distributed by Twentieth Television. Vinny Rutherford serves as executive producer.
