Triller and HollyWire, a premiere outlet targeting today’s youth, announced a new in-studio show, “HollyWire Next Gen News,” a twice-a-week program exclusively devoted to the latest news and gossip in the world of Gen Z celebrity and culture.
“This is not your father’s celebrity news and gossip,” Alexanne Wagner, director of TrillerTV, said. “In our newly democratized and decentralized media world, Gen Z sees the world differently and plays by its own rules, just like Triller does and unlike many other platforms, Triller has unique and close relationships with the upper echelon of Gen Z celebrities. With the journalistic expertise of HollyWire, ‘Next Gen News’ will help fans hear it there first and understand who’s driving culture and what it means. We’re very excited to partner with the talented HollyWire team on this new program.”
“We’re thrilled to join forces with Triller, whose empowerment of creators and influencers make them an ideal partner to bring more awareness to the culture that matters to Gen Z audiences,” commented the HollyWire Team.
Premiering today, “HollyWire Next Gen” News will air Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:00 PM PT on TrillerTV (https://triller.co/@hollywire). The show is also available on HollyWire’s YouTube, Samsung TV+, Samsung TV+ Mobile, Instagram, and TikTok. Episodes are available on VOD on HollyWire’s Triller profile after airing (https://triller.co/@hollywire).
Viewers can also send in their anonymous news and gossip tips via HollyWire’s Triller profile or the tip line at (833) 311-1233.
