Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth will air weekdays on Yahoo sites and Disney Interactive-owned mom blog Babble.com.
“It’s basically some news and my views,” Wentworth told ABC News. The show offers a comedic perspective on top stories on Yahoo, adding to the onslaught of trending news series like Shira Lazar’s What’s Trending, Dailymotion’s Buzz 60, and Yahoo’s own Trending Now.
Each 3-5 minute episode is shot from Wentworth’s kitchen and features cameo appearances by Wentworth’s husband, Good Morning America co-anchor George Stephanopoulos (see the first episode).
The series will be distributed on Yahoo properties Yahoo Screen, Yahoo News, and Shine. Yahoo has been making great strides in premium online video since its launch of Yahoo Screen, introducing a slate of original programming including shows from mega-star Tom Hanks and America’s Funniest Home Videos producer Vin di Bona. Yahoo is setting up a studio space in New York, and was recently honored at the 2012 NATPE Digital Luminary Awards.
