Co-anchored by Shannon Bream and Bill Hemmer, this weekday news show covers stories making headlines around the nation and the world. Guests pertinent to the news topics are interviewed and viewer emails are also answered by the anchors and guests.
Veteran journalist Howard Kurtz is no stranger to criticizing the media. He did it for 20 years as a media columnist for The Washington Post and as host of CNN's long-running "Reliable Sources" from 1998 through the first half of 2013. So it's no surprise that shortly after departing CNN in mid-2013 for rival Fox News Channel he would premiere a show for his new employer that is modeled after his previous program. In addition to Kurtz and his weekly panel discussing how the press covers a variety of topics that include technology, social media, politics and sports, the host also interviews some of the country's top journalists. And, as you might expect in these social mediacentric times, "MediaBuzz" features some viewers' questions and comments on the show.
Journalist Chris Wallace moderates the Fox News political issues program, featuring interview with newsmakers of the day, focusing on the current topics and issues facing the country. The son of CBS newsman Mike Wallace, Chris Wallace also previously helmed the NBC weekend political show "Meet the Press."
