San Francisco (August 13, 2007) â€“ Current TV, the worldâ€™s peer-to-peer news and information network, today announced the launch of â€œThe Daily Fix,â€ â€“ the first music blog for television, premiering Wednesday, August 15 on Current TV. â€œThe Daily Fixâ€ will bring daily, dedicated music news back to television six times a day with timely coverage on artists and the music industry from around the world.
â€œThe Daily Fixâ€ will help to break emerging artists from a slew of genres by shining a spotlight on formerly underground and unreachable artists worldwide â€“ before they hit the mainstream. Dan Deacon, Dizzee Rascal, Josh Ritter, Saigon and St. Vincent are among the TV music blogâ€™s first picks for feature coverage.
â€œThe Daily Fixâ€ will give viewers 90-second doses of daily music news in a groundbreaking reporting style that utilizes MP3s from music blog aggregators, gritty user-generated video clips and cell phone camera images. From sample-based music and mash-ups to concert footage shot by fans, â€œThe Daily Fixâ€ will infuse its coverage with music and media never before seen or heard on television.
Created by producers Douglas Caballero (host) and Alex Simmons (director), â€œThe Daily Fixâ€ will air six times every day: 9:31 a.m.; 1:31p.m.; 5:31p.m.; 8:31p.m.; 12:31 a.m.; and 04:31 a.m. (all times EST).
