BuzzFeed News plans to launch a new video interview show in the next two months, to stream on Facebook Watch. The weekly show is being described as a millennial-focused “Charlie Rose”–style program, with 20-minute episodes featuring an interview a week with a premiere celebrity, politician or other newsmaker.
Plans for the program show how BuzzFeed is building a stable of news shows as it works to expand its video business. It already has a morning show, “AM to DM,” which streams on Twitter, featuring brief interviews. BuzzFeed News also has sold a show to Netflix called “Follow This,” premiering on July 9, a behind-the-scenes look at how its reporters pursue stories.
