New York, NY - September 10, 2012 - CBS Television Distribution's Inside Edition begins its new season as television's longest-running, top-rated and most-honored syndicated newsmagazine on September 10, 2012. Inside Edition is the No. 2 syndicated magazine on the air and has ranked among the top 10 first-run syndicated programs every season for the past 24 seasons.

On January 9th of this upcoming season, Inside Edition begins its 25th year on air, making it one of the most enduring syndicated programs ever. In January, Inside Edition will look back at the biggest stories of the last quarter of a century.

In addition to a milestone season, Inside Edition improves its timeslot in the New York City market, moving from 12 PM to 1 PM, ET on Fox 5 (WNYW-TV).

Inside Edition continued to enhance its reputation this past season as a news breaking broadcast. From the front page of the New York Times to an on-air report on National Public Radio, Inside Edition was credited as the first to reveal a photo of Pedro Hernandez, the alleged killer of Etan Patz - the six-year-old who went missing in 1979. Inside Edition also broke news in one of the year's biggest celebrity stories - the tragic death of Whitney Houston. The contents of the diva's controversial will were first reported by Inside Edition with most other news organization's, including Associated Press, crediting the exclusive story.

Inside Edition's award-winning investigative unit continues to garner prestige for the broadcast. The unit won a 2012 National Headliner Award, placing first in the "Broadcast Television, Networks, Cable Networks and Syndicators for Business and Consumer Reporting" for its investigation on "Power Bracelets." This same investigation also garnered an Honorable Mention from the 2012 National Press Journalism Contest in the "Consumer Journalism Broadcast" category. Another Honorable Mention went to Inside Edition's series of reports on animal abuse, including investigations on animal hoarding and the exotic animal trade in the National Press Club's "Ann Cottrell Free Animal Reporting" category.

Inside Edition is anchored by two-time Emmy Award winner Deborah Norville, who joined the newsmagazine in 1995 from CBS News, where she anchored "America Tonight" and reported for "48 Hours," "Street Stories" and "CBS Evening News." Working with Norville is an experienced team of broadcast journalists, overseen by Executive Producer Charles Lachman, with Co-Executive Producer Esther Pessin, Managing Editor Kevin Harry and Senior Producer Brian Hendel.

As in past seasons, Inside Edition's Chief Correspondent Jim Moret, was in high demand by numerous media outlets to provide his keen legal commentary on high profile trials. In November of 2011, when Michael Jackson's doctor was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, Moret had the rare distinction of being the only on-air legal commentator who had predicted that outcome just shortly after the King of Pop's death in June of 2009.

Other members of the Inside Edition team are the show's noted Investigative Unit headed by Senior Producer Bob Read and Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero, with correspondents Diane McInerney, Paul Boyd, Les Trent, Megan Alexander. Boyd and McInerney are also the co-anchors of Inside Edition Weekend.

Inside Edition is produced daily at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City and produced and distributed by CBS Television Distribution, a unit of CBS Corp.
