‘Raising America with Kyra Phillips’ to Bow on HLN

“Raising America” a new daytime show hosted by Kyra Phillips will debut February 4 at NoonET on HLN, TVNewser has learned.

Phillips, a 13-year CNN veteran joined HLN last summer. Phillips field anchored HLN’s RNC and DNC coverage, got the first interview with David Petraeus following his CIA resignation all while developing the show. The mother of twins with Fox News senior national correspondent John Roberts, Phillips told us at the DNC the new show will be “news through the parent’s perspective.”

“I have spent my whole career covering wars, going to the South Pole, doing investigative pieces, doing high-profile interviews with world leaders,” Phillips said. “Now I am a mom, I am a mom in my mid-40s, and my husband, and my kids and my family are so important to me. I am taking the two things that I love, my journalism background, combined with being a mom, and I am going to fold that into the new show.”

HLN is increasingly using the theme of America in its shows. ”Making it in America” airs daily at 4pmET while Ty Pennington will host the monthly “American Journey” on the network.

John Roberts’ Other Job at the RNC: Fixing Kyra Phillips’ Hair

HLN anchor Kyra Phillips calls this her first political convention “on the inside.”

“Being on the floor, interacting with the delegates — I’ve covered conventions before as an anchor, as a correspondent, with regard to policy and the speeches and the politicians, but this is my first time actually at the convention, on the floor, talking to the people and getting all the personal stories,” Phillips told TVNewser this afternoon. “This is a totally different ballgame. Way more fun, way more interesting.”

Phillips does one live shot an hour from HLN’s stand-up location, which is just behind the Texas delegation on the convention floor. To keep things fresh, her hits are a combination of pre-planned segments and things she grabs on the fly, like the interview she did in the NoonET hour with the Oak Ridge Boys (pictured), who will perform tonight.

“I am staying away from policy and politicians and focusing on people and how they are engaged in the process,” she said. “For me, I love conversation. I love learning about people. Characters fascinate me. It feels like it’s not even working, it’s not even a job.”

And there is a special part of this convention for Phillips: her husband, Fox News Channel senior national correspondent John Roberts, has a stand-up location just a few yards away.

Kyra Phillips Leading HLN’s Political Convention Coverage

As we reported last November, HLN is going to be dedicating plenty of time to the 2012 election… albeit with a decidedly different tack than its sister network CNN. Rather than focus on the politicians during the RNC and DNC, HLN will set its sights on the voters and delegates.

Recent CNN transplant Kyra Phillips will lead HLN’s political convention coverage, anchoring reports during “Morning Express” and “Evening Express,” and throughout the day.

HLN is also partnering with CafeMom for “Moms Matter 2012,” which will feature Phillips, a mother of twins (dad is Fox News’s John Roberts), and a panel of moms talking about issues important to them at each convention.

More information on HLN’s convention plans, after the jump.
