Tina Brown to launch Daily Beast TV in November

Adweek.com | New York Observer

The venture is described as an online talk show with a raw and spontaneous feel. Lucia Moses reports Daily Beast TV will have a mix of original videos like the “Ask Andrew Anything” feature that Andrew Sullivan launched in September. Former "Topic A with Tina Brown" executive producer Kathy O’Hearn is directing the operation with assistance from two former ABC News staffers. Adweek's Moses notes that the soon-to-launch multimedia play could help the Newsweek Daily Beast Co. as it strives to erase an estimated $30 million that the newsweekly and website combined lost last year.
