‘Page Six TV’ Surpasses the 90 Percent Clearance Mark

National Launch of Daily First-Run Half-Hour Strip in September

Twentieth Television announced today that “Page Six TV,” the new daily TV show from the New York Post and Endemol Shine North America, is now cleared in more than 90 percent of the country for a September 2017 debut.

The program, cleared in 15 of the top 15 markets, is set to premiere across Tribune, CBS, Sinclair, Hearst, Scripps, Meredith, Nexstar, Raycom, Tegna and CW 100+ stations. These join the previously announced launch on the Fox Television Stations (FTS) in 16 markets, including New York and Los Angeles.

“As we transition to the upfront season, the Twentieth Television media sales team is meeting with hundreds of agency and marketing partners – who are already expressing their enthusiasm for ‘Page Six TV’, a powerful brand with wide reach across multiple platforms,” said Michael Teicher, EVP of Media Sales, of Twentieth Television. “As a core focus of our upfront presentations we not only share the merits of our young, plugged-in, pop culture focused viewer, but offer the ad community brand integration and custom content opportunities.”

Added Endemol Shine North America CEO Cris Abrego, “Twentieth Television has pulled together an incredibly strong lineup for our fall launch and the team here at Endemol Shine, as well as our colleagues at the NY Post and our talented group of journalists and on-air personalities, are eager to start producing ‘Page Six TV’ for a national audience.”

The national launch of “Page Six TV” comes after the successful three week preview last summer hosted by John Fugelsang (Sirius XM Radio/VH1) and featuring Bevy Smith (Bravo’s “Fashion Queens”), Variety entertainment reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister, New York Post Page Six reporter Carlos Greer and Mario Cantone (“The View,” “Sex and the City”). Page Six Editor Emily Smith and Deputy Editor Ian Mohr provided updates and insight, as well as exclusive first-looks into the latest breaking stories from the newsroom.
