Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy announced the signing of an
agreement with best-selling author and legal expert Alan Dershowitz to
host "You and the Law," a weekly TV series offering practical legal
advice to ordinary Americans.
With Newsmax TV commencing its soft launch today into more than
one-third of U.S. cable/satellite homes and an initial nine hours of
live news and talk programming, the channel's planned summer debut of
the Dershowitz program represents a tangible commitment to delivering
valued and relevant informational and lifestyle programming targeted
toward baby boomers.
"You and the Law," the first of a series of special short-form programs,
will join a series of other short-form programs covering personal
finance, healthy living, entertainment and more, and will be
continuously integrated throughout the network's news talk schedule.
"Whether you agree or disagree with Alan Dershowitz, you always listen
to what he has to say," Christopher Ruddy said. "Professor Dershowitz is
a great legal mind, respected by all sides, and we are confident that
our viewers will find his advice useful to them in many ways."
"I am pleased to join with Newsmax TV for this exciting series of
programs that can help educate Americans as to their rights and how to
apply them in daily life," Professor Dershowitz said. "I get asked legal
questions all the time, from people who are often challenged and
confounded by our legal system or just fascinated by it, and I am very
excited about this opportunity to share my experience and insight with
an engaged audience," he added.
Professor Dershowitz has been described as "the nation's most
peripatetic civil liberties lawyer" and one of its "most distinguished
defenders of individual rights." He taught at Harvard Law School for 50
years, where he was named the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law in
1993. He is a noted commentator and the author of 30 books, including
his latest best-seller "Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law." He has
written more than 1,000 op-ed pieces for the New York Times and the Wall
Street Journal, among others, and he currently makes Newsmax.com his
home page for blog postings.
