Daily Beast TV to Launch in November

The Daily Beast TV program that we told you about back in July is finally nearing its launch. According to Adweek, the online talk show is debuting in November, and while details are scarce, Tina Brown apparently knows enough to make use of Andrew Sullivan to grab some viewers. He’ll be taking his “Ask Andrew Anything” segment, which is pretty self-explanatory, to the new venture.

Daily Beast TV is being helmed by some TV minds too, with Susie Banikarim and David Wharton — both formerly of ABC News — working behind the scenes.

Other than that, we know that Lexus is going to be a launch sponsor, and Brown is already tired of people referencing her previous failed TV venture, “Topic A with Tina Brown.” Which means she’s probably going to be extremely annoyed if Daily Beast TV tanks.
