DESCRIPTION:
(from Pivot's press release, April 2014) Pivot's nightly topical series, TakePart Live, is a destination where Millennial audiences can engage in an intelligent dialogue about what truly matters to their generation. Offering viewers a forum to discuss the issues of the moment, TakePart Live explores topics from the day's headlines. Beginning Monday, May 12, the network will take that conversation from late-night to primetime when the hour-long program moves to 10 PM ET/9 PM CT. Along with the shift into primetime, Pivot announced it has tapped Embassy Row, and its president Michael Davies, to produce the program, which will now be hosted by Meghan McCain, Jacob Soboroff, and Eddie Huang. Huang, a 32 year-old bestselling author, comic, restaurateur, and food personality, is known, according to The New York Times for his "brash cultural mash-ups" and his "take no prisoners critiques of everyone and everything." News about the series was announced today by Pivot's Belisa Balaban, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Craig Parks, Senior Vice President, Live Programming, at a press breakfast held today in New York. Airing live Monday through Thursdays, with a special highlights show on Fridays, the program will be shot at TakePart Live's vibrant new studio in Los Angeles. In addition to covering the news as they see it, the hosts will have an opportunity to address topics that they find meaningful, giving the series the chance to explore a more personal side of the issues. The conversation will continue online with original articles, photography and video at Takepart.com.
