Katie Couric, Paula Zahn & More Set for AT THE PALEY CENTER's 3rd Season, Beginning Today
The Paley Center for Media and WLIW21 brings legendary journalistic voices and footage to New York metro area public television viewers in the third season of the interview series At the Paley Center premiering Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. beginning tonight, January 3rd on THIRTEEN and Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NJTV and 10:30 p.m. on WLIW21 beginning January 8th.
For this third season, the Paley Center and WLIW21 are launching a special initiative called "She's Making News," a new series of programs that puts a slightly different lens on the subject of women's role in journalism. Hosted by Pat Mitchell, President and CEO of The Paley Center for Media, each half-hour episode of the six-part series concentrates on a woman who has used media in innovative ways in order to report the news, including Katie Couric (January 3), Christiane Amanpour (January 10), Maria Bartiromo (January 17), Gayle King (January 24), Soledad O'Brien (January 31), and Paula Zahn (February 7).
In each unique and compelling episode, the guest's life-story is intertwined with numerous examples of her work, taking advantage of the Paley Center's Collection. Mitchell also speaks with each guest about the enormous impact of the media on women and the evolving role of journalism in all our lives.
Episodes of At the Paley Center will stream online after each week's premiere at www.thirteen.org/paleycenter.
