Syndication One syndicated radio host The Rev. Al Sharpton has created his own media company and will branch out into weekly television, launching a Sunday morning syndicated TV show. The civil rights advocate unveiled his 30-minute show, “Education Superhighway,” last week at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 40th Annual Legislative Conference. The show produced by Sharpton’s media company, ESH Holdings (named after the programs initials) is already cleared in 150 markets, including KCOP in Los Angeles. The company also plans on publishing a weekly magazine focusing on education.
“Education Superhighway”, which begins airing Sept. 26, consists of news and roundtable discussions primarily about education. Guests already lined up include Bill Gates, Newt Gingrich, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and president of the American Federation of Teachers Randi Weingarten.
Sharpton who hosts the the daily Syndication One produced and Superadio distributed syndicated radio show ‘Keepin’ ‘It Real’, already has a heavy television presence and is a frequent commentator on cable news outlets, including The Fox News Channel, where he’s often highlighted as the voice of dissent on shows like “The Sean Hannity Show” and “The O’Reilly Factor.”
