Variety and WNBC New York kick off a new alliance June 16, with the launch of daily entertainment business news segments, from the pages of Daily Variety Gotham, on the Gotham TV channel’s “Today in New York” early-morning news program.
News from Daily Variety Gotham’s news desk will also be featured on WNBC news programs throughout the day. In addition, staffers from Variety’s new New York bureau will be appearing on-camera on WNBC’s news programs.
The morning segments will be anchored by current WNBC on-air personnel.
The alliance between the two newsgathering organizations stems from the March 16 launch of Daily Variety Gotham. Since its debut three months ago, the paper has provided daily comprehensive coverage of the growing entertainment and media business in New York, Hollywood and around the world.
Daily Variety has a similar news-sharing arrangement with KABC Los Angeles.
