Ventura show pinned down

Timeslot set, but no premiere date or location

MSNBC has firmed up plans for former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura’s talkshow.

“The Jesse Ventura Show” will air at 10 p.m. against Fox News’ “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren” and CNN’s “NewsNight With Aaron Brown.”

Show will include high-profile guests as well as questions and participation from a live-studio audience.

No premiere date or location is mentioned. There had been speculation that the program would air from Ventura’s home state, which the net has dismissed.

Sources close to the deal say yakker, also described as “a platform for analyzing news,” did not have a bow date yet because a potential war against Iraq may disrupt programming.

Ventura’s managers Barry Bloom and Michael Braverman — who brokered the deal along with WMA’s Mark Itkin — are the show’s co-executive producers.

MSNBC, which declined to comment, has not named its own executive producer.
