This latest expansion fully leverages the value of AMC's vast movie catalog while providing a viewing atmosphere and destination unique to basic cable.

Road to the Red Carpet brings the network to major industry events including the Golden Globes and the Emmy Awards where Soboroff obtains interviews with the nominees and past winners. AMC News will also travel to film festivals to include Toronto, Sundance, Cannes, Tribeca and others to report on the day to day activities and to obtain exclusive interviews. Lastly, viewers can expect Soboroff to provide original reporting and commentary on politics, pop-culture and all things celebrity. Online, at AMCtv.com users can experience blogs, vlogs and the production of exclusive original content all under the AMC News banner.

His work there earned him a 2008 Los Angeles Press Club National Entertainment Journalism Award, a Film Your Issue Award and a Webby Award nomination. He is also a regular contributor to NPR Weekend Edition Sunday on-air and online. Jacob was a contributor to the PBS and WIRED magazine series WIRED Science.
