NYC life/Channel 25, the flagship television station of NYC Media, is adding nine programs for its fall schedule. Among the new shows, Toni On!, with host Toni Senecal, makes the move from WPIX. Several other shows are back, including the popular Emmy Award-winning $9.99.

The channel will also offer 13 new weekly short-form programs that focus on New York City.

“NYC life’s new fall line-up is the result of the collaborative efforts of NYC Media and our many content partners,” Commissioner Katherine Oliver, Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, said in a statement. “…with more and more people watching content on their mobile devices, NYC Media has expanded its Video on Demand Player so that it works across numerous platforms. We’re dedicated to providing quality content to as many New Yorkers as possible whether they’re watching our shows in the back of a taxi, on the Staten Island ferry, online or at home on their couch.”

The new shows, with an estimated value of $2.4 million, join more than a dozen other programs that were launched in May and combined represent a total savings of $6.15 million to taxpayers.
