'Celebrity Page' Brings Positivity to Hollywood
Watch out, TMZ: There’s a new kid on the block called Celebrity Page!
This fast-action TV-magazine show brings fans celebrity-based news for 30 minutes every weeknight in a fresh, newly created package. The nationally syndicated show, seen Monday through Friday on Reelz and broadcast in more than 150 markets (check local listings), presents “a whole range of Hollywood events and celebrity stories in a positive way,” says executive producer Mike Kelley. The emphasis on “good news,” he adds, came after extensive research with viewers told the Celebrity Page creators that audiences are craving “more dimensions of celebrity, not just the bad stuff.”
“Social media and other shows have cornered the market for gossip, so we had to go in an entirely different direction,” notes Kelley.
East Coast–based Sonia Isabelle and West Coaster Jaymes Vaughan split the hosting duties in each episode, bringing their enthusiasm and vast knowledge of pop culture to every story. “What we get out of Jaymes and Sonia on a nightly basis are not only two very seasoned journalists, but they also share a passion for entertainment,” says Celebrity Page senior executive producer Mark Berryhill.
Along with behind-the-scenes access to favorite TV shows and movie stars from Isabelle and Vaughan, viewers will see some familiar TV Guide Magazine faces. Senior Critic Matt Roush delivers his verdict on what’s worth watching, Damian Holbrook provides some humor from his unique Cheers & Jeers column and yours truly, West Coast Bureau Chief Jim Halterman, reports on the latest TV-industry news. A regular feature will be TV Guide Magazine’s cover parties, like the recent New York event with Mariska Hargitay celebrating Law & Order: SVU’s 400th episode.
“It’s the perfect partnership with top journalists bringing their expertise and opinions to our fresh new approach to reporting on Hollywood and the new golden age of TV,” says Berryhill.
“TV Guide Magazine is the most respected authority on TV, and Celebrity Page viewers will now get coverage they can’t find anywhere else.”
