As previously mentioned on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 10/23/13), JOHN TESH and THE TESHMEDIA GROUP will be launching "INTELLIGENCE FOR YOUR LIFE TV" as a daily syndicated television show beginning on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th, 2014.
THE TESH MEDIA GROUP announced today that they have already signed on 130 stations to officially launch the syndicated daily program.
The program features syndicated radio host and former ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT personality JOHN TESH, his wife CONNIE SELLECCA, actress and host of INTELLIGENCE FOR YOUR HEALTH RADIO SHOW, and millennial expert GIB GERARD.
The television program is produced by SELLECCA, TESH and GERARD and self-syndicated under the direction of former PARAMOUNT TELEVISION executive MARK DVORNIK. The daily strip will launch with 83% of the U.S. and CANADA into nearly 100 million homes, airing MONDAY to SATURDAY and will be cross-promoted with the daily "INTELLIGENCE FOR YOUR LIFE" radio show.
The new half hour television program (aired in most markets as 2 half hours) will be available in seven of the Top 10 markets including NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, CHICAGO, SAN FRANCISCO, DALLAS, and BOSTON. The show will connect viewers to experts in various fields and feature short, shareable segments from the most popular radio show categories. Advice and living insight from some of the world’s most respected health/medical, finance, relationships & dating, career, travel and beauty experts.
According to JOHN TESH, "Our nearly 300 radio stations have helped us build a strong lifestyle brand over the last 12 years and the addition of broadcast and online video is a natural progression. I spent 25 years in the local news world and then another 10 in television syndication with ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and I’m excited to partner with our strong launch group of affiliates."
CONNIE SELLECCA commented, "Creating and co-hosting this show with my husband and son is a blast! The discussion segment of the program at the ‘family table’ lets the audience in on some of our 23 years of family dynamics."
GIB GERARD added, "The INTELLIGENCE FOR YOUR LIFE production team utilizes a fully integrated content strategy and unique production model to build on current relationships with advertisers. The strategic media team will create a personalized program in each individual market to not only produce useful 'life coaching' pieces for the viewer, but to also create unique, branded-content pieces in which advertisers can reside. This is a show that protects our local and national advertisers from the 'DVR dilemma."
