The choices for Sunday morning TV programming is expanding by one show starting September 26 and you might recognize the person involved in this expansion! The Rev. Al Sharpton, who founded the National Action Network that is based on 145th Street in Harlem, has created his own media company and now in turn will compete in the Sunday morning programming with his own syndicated TV show called “Education Superhighway!” This was all announced to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week and today Sharpton is introducing “Education Superhighway,” the 30 minute show, to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. I wonder what Christiane Amanpour from ABC and David Gregory NBC think?
Apparently the Sharpton show has been picked up in 150 markets according to THR. I’ve seen no signs of it airing in New York City yet. Guess I will have to flip through the channels on the tube the morning of September 26 to see if Sharpton is on!
