Modeled after the New York Post gossip column Page Six, the program delivers news and gossip from entertainment, culture, media, finance, real estate, and politics. Since its debut, “Page Six TV” has hosted guests to its New York studio, including Craig Robinson, Dr. Oz, Joy Behar, and Terry Crews. “Page Six TV” is hosted by John Fugelsang, and the show’s insiders include Variety’s TV reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister, New York Post Page Six senior reporter Carlos Greer, and Bevy Smith. Kay O’Connell and Michael Bachmann serve as executive producers, along with New York Post publisher and CEO Jesse Angelo, and Endemol Shine North America’s Michael Weinberg and Rob Smith.
