Court TV Promotes Ted Rowlands To Anchor
Court TV has promoted veteran crime and justice reporter Ted Rowlands to network anchor, effective immediately. Rowlands joins Vinnie Politan, Seema Iyer and Julie Grant helming the network’s anchor desk based at Court TV’s headquarters in Atlanta.
Rowlands has been a field producer and reporter for the new Court TV since its launch this past May.
A crime and justice correspondent with more than 20 years of experience, Rowlands is best known for covering such high-proﬁle criminal cases as those involving O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Jodi Arias, Scott Peterson, Robert Blake and Phil Spector.
He previously worked for ABC News, CNN and in local television, as well as serving as a contributor on crime documentaries produced by ABC, the BBC, Discovery ID and Turner Broadcasting.
Court TV is devoted to live, gavel-to-gavel coverage, in-depth legal reporting and expert analysis of the nation’s most important and compelling trials. It is a multi-platform network, available to be seen on cable, over-the-air and over-the-top. This past October Court TV grew even more, expanding its footprint into 19 new markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Dallas. The new launches drive the network’s over-the-air penetration to nearly 90 percent of the country and nearly 40 percent on cable.
Court TV is part of Katz Networks, which is owned by The E.W. Scripps Co.
