Millennial-focused news and culture network Fusion is launching a new weekly panel program which will tackle everything from the current state of politics to pop culture.
The Fusion Feed will air Thursdays at 9:30 p.m., and feature contributors who will weigh in on “what’s catching our attention, pissing us off, making us laugh, or stirring up spirited debate across social media feeds,” with a little empathy and humor mixed in for good measure.
“Today’s political climate has made our young, diverse viewers even more engaged in their world than before,” Fusion svp of content and programming Keith Summa tells TVNewser. “That’s why you’re seeing the number of young viewers watching cable news increase so dramatically. But they’re looking for someone to give them context in a way they find authentic – and that’s what we’re trying to do with The Fusion Feed.”
Co-hosts and contributors include Fusion personalities from a variety of backgrounds, including six women and three men: Nando Vila, Kimberly Brooks, Nelufar Hedayat, Ryan Nerz, Natasha Del Toro, Alaa Basatneh, Miriti Murungi, Cleo Stiller and Romina Puga.
Univision and Fusion news anchor Jorge Ramos will sporadically contribute special reports as well.
The Fusion Feed will be paired with another new series from Fusion, The A.V. Club, which premiered on Thursday, March 16.
