Talk about a career boost! Kevin Ross—who has been a BlogTalkRadio host for the past two-and-a-half years—will be taking his talents to the next level as host of America’s Court with Judge Ross.
The nationally-syndicated TV show, brought to us by Byron Allen‘s Entertainment Studios, is set to launch this fall, and has already been sold into 75 percent of the U.S. market, Broadcasting & Cable reports.
America’s Court will also air on one of Entertainment Studios’ six high-def cable nets, which were rolled out on Verizon’s FiOS broadband systems in September.
Set to tape in Kevin’s hometown of Los Angeles, the show will offer litigants “unique ways in which to responsibly deal with their unlawful or wrongful acts, while forcing wrongdoers to reflect on the consequences of their transgressions.”
“I love the BlogTalkRadio format, I love my fellow hosts and I’ve had a great relationship with my listeners,” Kevin tells us.
“So I look forward to incorporating BTR into my TV show.”
Prior to launching his BTR show, Kevin spent eight years as an L.A. County prosecutor before being elected as a Superior Court judge, in which capacity he served for seven years.
In October 2008, Kevin—an African American Republican—was one of eight BTR hosts selected to compete in Fox News Radio’s Battle of the Blog Talkers. Along with David McLaughlin—a white Democrat from Atlanta—he took top honors in the weeklong test of political prowess leading up to historic Election ’08.
In the wake of Kevin and David’s victory, BTR highlighted the hosts’ chemistry in a show called Game On!, which offered a spirited West Coast-East Coast take on the most provocative issues of the week.
When not making media waves, Kevin is president and CEO of 3BAAS Media Group, a marketing firm specializing in Internet and Web 2.0 communications. The tech-savvy entrepreneur also owns several blogs, including 3 Brothers and A Sister.
