As we teased earlier this year, HLN is launching a new weekday program anchored by longtime anchor Vinnie Politan. The new program is called “Making It In America,” and will air on HLN from 4-5 PM ET.
The new program launches this afternoon, with the focus on “news stories, trends and newsmakers that illustrate how Americans are surviving and, in some cases, thriving in today’s challenging economic climate,” according to the network. Politan has been part of the Turner family for years, starting as an anchor for CourtTV, before shifting to InSession and later HLN. He most recently worked on HLN’s “Prime News” and “Special Report.”
“While achieving the American Dream seems elusive to many these days, you would be surprised how people are embracing the challenges and persevering,” said HLN executive VP Scot Safon in a statement. “They’re inventing new economies, creating new solutions, partnering and innovating. Fully covering the topic of ‘Making It In America,’ means capturing the challenges, the victories, the inventiveness and the struggles.”
