DailyMailTV will cover breaking news, celebrity, crime, health, science and technology, drawing on the resources of DailyMail.com. Clarke launched the online English-language newspaper in 2007. Now, it boasts approximately 243 million unique visitors globally with offices in London, Los Angeles, New York and Sydney. The site originally launched in the U.S. in July 2010 as MailOnline, and it’s still called that in the U.K. On average, DailyMail.com publishes 800 videos, 12,800 photos and 1,600 stories per day, making it the fourth most-viewed publisher on Facebook in the world.
“DailyMailTV is a unique and innovative program that hasn’t been seen in the television landscape before and will stand alone in the genre,” said Jay McGraw in a statement.
DailyMailTV joins Twentieth’s Page Six TV and Top 30 and Tegna and MGM’s BOLD in the national syndication market, with all four shows expected to launch this fall. Other new offerings include MGM’s CouplesCourt and Entertainment Studios’ half-hour comic game Funny You Should Ask.
