Court TV Promotes Ted Rowlands To Anchor
Court TV has promoted veteran crime and justice reporter Ted Rowlands to network anchor, effective immediately. Rowlands joins Vinnie Politan, Seema Iyer and Julie Grant helming the network's anchor desk based at Court TV's headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
Rowlands has served as a field producer and reporter for the new Court TV since its launch this past May. A crime and justice correspondent with more than 20 years of experience, Rowlands is best known for covering such high proﬁle criminal cases as those involving O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Jodi Arias, Scott Peterson, Robert Blake and Phil Spector. He previously worked for ABC News, CNN and in local television, as well as serving as a contributor on crime documentaries produced by ABC, the BBC, Discovery ID and Turner Broadcasting.
"Ted is one of the most-seasoned true-crime journalists in the business and his insight, interviewing and reporting in the field since our launch have been outstanding," commented Court TV vice president and managing editor Scott Tufts. "We're thrilled to have him on the desk as the newest member of our first-class Court TV anchor team."
