"I am just really excited about the idea of doing a news magazine program," said Gordon. He continued, "It is something that almost every stop I ever made that was African-American owned wanted to do, a news magazine program, and for one reason or another, we just never did. When Bounce TV came to me and talked to me about this, I jumped at the chance. I love the fact that we're going to be able to do this kind of show and I am very pleased with the premiere and the lineup that we have."
