Following a successful six-week test run last summer on select Fox TV stations, Media General’s BiteSize TV and Fox TV Stations have inked a deal to renew BiteSize TV’s Hollywood Today Live for the 2015 broadcast season. The daily entertainment news and variety show will premiere September 14 on Fox TV Stations and Media General stations in major markets, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. The companies are working to add new partners in additional markets. The one-hour program is produced live at BiteSize TV studios on Hollywood and Vine.
