samdonaldson@ABCNEWS.com Goes Daily
If you can't get your fill of Sam Donaldson, get ready for Sam Donaldson five days a week. ABCNews.com says that its live video show "samdonaldson@ABCNEWS.com" is going daily.
The show first "aired" on September 1999 and was the first exclusive web show produced by a major network. So far, Sam has had an eclectic array of guests including Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos, Janeane Garofalo, Metallica's Lars Ulrich, George W. Bush, and former British Prime Minister John Majors.
Starting June 5th, the show will air live daily at 12:30 PM ET.
Additionally, ABCNews.com (http://www.abcnews.com) is putting the show in old media, by producing a daily five-minute radio show for its 3,000 affiliate-strong radio network.
"Everyone is navigating new waters with the Internet," said Donaldson in a statement. "With the abilities and opportunities that ABCNEWS now has with ABCNEWS.com, it seems logical to utilize the World Wide Web as much as we can. With the streaming video, it is just like I am doing the television programs that I have been doing for years - only the atmosphere is more experimental, spontaneous and immediate."
