“Front Page,” Fox’s first prime time newsmagazine, bows at 9 p.m. Saturday. The weekly one-hour program features correspondents Ron Reagan Jr., Andria Hall, Tony Harris, Vicki Liviakis and Josh Mankiewicz.
David Corvo is the executive producer.
Corvo was formerly the VP for public affairs at CBS News, responsible for overseeing “60 Minutes,””48 Hours” and “Street Stories.”
The first installment of “Front Page” features a report suggesting that associates of “Sliver” star Sharon Stone, her fiance Bill MacDonald and veteran producer Robert Evans bilked millions of dollars from elderly investors. Evans and MacDonald, responding to earlier reports on the matter, have denied involvement in any illegal activities.
Another segment will chronicle a teenager on her six-month plastic surgery odyssey to “look like me only better,” which included a nose job, liposuction and breast implants.
With the exception of Reagan, the former First Son, the on-air correspondents are largely unknowns to the FBC audience.
As for “Front Page’s” journalistic pedigree, Reagan hosted his own late night talk show; Hall was previously the reporter, producer, and co-anchor of “Chronicle”– the long-running nightly news magazine on WCVB-TV in Boston; and Harris has done reporter and anchor duties on WKYC-TV in Cleveland, and reported for “PM Magazine” and “Entertainment Tonight.”
Mankiewicz is a former ABC News network correspondent, known locally as the Emmy-nominated political reporter for KCAL-TV. Liviakis, another Angeleno, comes from KCOP-TV, where she was the anchor of “Real News.”
