Star Jones, current red carpet correspondent for E! and former host of the The View, is returning to that medium as host of an upcoming daytime talk show on Court TV.
This will actually mark a return to the network for Jones, who worked at the network in 1991 as a legal commentator. She will also serve as executive editor on the show.
The talk show, to debut later this year, will fuse crime and justice stories together with pop culture.
“The public is fascinated by the intersection of the legal world and the pop-culture world, and we hope to tap into that fascination as part of our overall strategy to broaden the appeal of the network’s daytime line-up,” said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks, who oversees Court TV.In a statement, Ms. Jones said: “My goal is to inform, empower, educate and entertain viewers. And Court TV is the perfect place to accomplish that mission”.
