ABOUT INSIDE EDITION
On September 13, 2021, CBS Media Ventures’ INSIDE EDITION begins its 34th season as the nation’s #1 syndicated newsmagazine, building upon a successful season in which the show made headlines, received industry accolades and, once again, ranked in the top 10 first-run syndicated programs. INSIDE EDITION reaches a daily audience of approximately 5 million viewers, while its digital news network delivers approximately 375 million video views per month. On YouTube, INSIDE EDITION has more than 9.5 million subscribers and more than 15.9 billion lifetime views.
Anchored by veteran newswoman Deborah Norville since 1995 and backed by a dedicated staff of correspondents and producers, the daily newsmagazine has built its enduring success by presenting a compelling mix of hard-hitting investigations, exclusive newsmaker interviews and incisive human-interest stories, as well as celebrity and pop culture features.
Norville is a two-time Emmy® Award winner actively involved in all aspects of the broadcast. In 2016, Norville, the longest serving anchor on American television, was inducted in the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame. Working with her is an experienced team of broadcast journalists, overseen by Executive Producer Charles Lachman, with Co-Executive Producer Esther Pessin, Senior Producer Brian Hendel, and West Coast Bureau Chief Tony Coghlan.
One of INSIDE EDITION’s best-known elements is its award-winning Investigative Unit. Most recently, INSIDE EDITION won a 2021 Clarion Award for its report which found that a prosperous tax-exempt church purchased a multi-million-dollar jet after receiving $3.9 million dollars through the government’s Paycheck Protection Program, which was intended to help pay employees’ salaries when the pandemic hit. As the report was being prepared for broadcast, the church paid back the government loan in full. INSIDE EDITION was the first news outlet to connect a religious organization to questionable spending after receiving a PPP loan.
The show’s Investigative Unit also won three 2020 Clarion Awards for reports on adoption fraud, home repair rip-offs, and the lavish lifestyles of mega-church preachers. The Unit’s work combines extensive research and surveillance, as well as hard-hitting interviews.
The newsmagazine also received Daytime Emmy® nominations in 2021, 2020, 2019 and 2017 for Outstanding Entertainment News Program, as well as a 2019 Critics’ Choice Real TV Award nomination for Entertainment News Show.
The work of the INSIDE EDITION team has also resulted in numerous other awards for journalistic excellence unmatched by any other syndicated newsmagazine program. The awards include The George Polk, Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi, National Press Club, National Headliner, Investigative Reporters and Editors, Exceptional Merits in Media Awards, Overseas Press Club, National Association of Consumer Agency Administrators, Fund for Animals, American Women in Radio and Television and National Women's Political Caucus. For its riveting coverage of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, INSIDE EDITION was honored with a National Press Club Award, National Headliner Award, Deadline Club Award and Clarion Award, and was nominated for a National News Emmy.
Other members of the INSIDE EDITION team include Weekend Anchor Mary Calvi, Chief Correspondent Jim Moret, Senior Correspondent Les Trent, Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero, and Correspondents Megan Alexander, Steven Fabian, Ann Mercogliano, and Victoria Recano.
INSIDE EDITION premiered on Jan. 9, 1989, when the syndicated newsmagazine genre was at its peak. It holds the distinction of being the only series among the original group that has remained on the air continually since then, and, as its ratings have proven, it continues to thrive.
INSIDE EDITION is produced daily by INSIDE EDITION Inc. and distributed by CBS Media Ventures.
