We are excited to be able to offer them a live companion show that they can watch, and participate in, either at OxygenLive.com or through our apps, that truly transforms 44 minutes of linear content into a 90 minutes of multiplatform programming for the first time in every episode," said Jennifer Kavanagh, Vice President, Digital and New Media, Oxygen.
