The List, Phoenix, AZ
The List is a television news magazine that finds the intersection between the news of the day and pop culture on a nightly basis.The show is founded around something we all use to stay on track – lists – to look at daily consumer issues and the hottest news trends.
What makes The List different from traditional news and entertainment shows is that it analyzes the day's headlines in an unexpected and sometimes humorous way.
The show's Emmy-award-winning hosts include Jan Jeffcoat, Teresa Strasser, Matt Gallant and Conor Knighton.
The List Show is managed under the direction of Executive Producer Rick Joyce. Joyce spent 10 years as News Director at Entertainment Tonight and created and executive produced an entertainment website called HollywoodIntel.com.
"We're engaging the viewer in a nightly conversation that drills down on the stories everyone is talking about. It's a conversation they likely started earlier in the day in their workplace, with their family or on their smart phone through social media," said Joyce. "It's our job to button up that conversation with take-away knowledge presented with a point of view that entertains and informs...and a few surprises."
"The List" was developed by E. W. Scripps after two years of intensive research. It launched in six television markets on September 17, 2012. The markets include: KNXV (ABC) Phoenix; WFTS (ABC) Tampa; WMAR (ABC) Baltimore; WCPO (ABC) Cincinnati; WEWS (ABC) Cleveland; and KJRH (NBC) Tulsa, Okla.
Scripps has a long, successful history as a content producer for television. In addition to extensive local news and information programming, Scripps also spent 15 years producing content for its own and other cable TV networks. The cable network division, which included Home & Garden Television and Food Network, was spun off into a separate company, Scripps Networks Interactive, in 2008.
Everyone loves a list and they love to have a little bit of fun. The List combines these together while giving viewers what they need to know with a unique attitude and style.
