MDiTV Launches First
Comprehensive Medical News Network
Broadcast Health Network Features Exclusive Health News and Health Shows
Portland, OR—April 27, 2010—MDiTV has announced its official launch today. The first of its kind medical information network offers 24/7 health news and programming on healthy living. The content is produced out of the company’s brand new Portland studio, and veteran anchors Andrew Holtz and Cathy Marshall, formerly of CNN, present the news segments.
“We’re very excited about the building and launch of this initial web portal and our subsequent expansion into all areas of digital broadcast,” said Robert Lazzara, M.D., founder and CEO of MDiTV, Inc.
Lazzara explained, “Coinciding with the convergence of digital technologies, MDiTV will soon offer applications for iPhones, iPads, other smartphones, and Internet supported TV, allowing viewers more abundant access to live and on demand rich media programming.” MDiTV is also the first health information network to broadcast a live surgery over an iPhone, which can be seen now at www.MDiTV.com.
“Today’s launch is just the beginning,” said Lazzara. “We have several additional shows and social media content ready to roll out over the upcoming weeks.”
Anchor Andrew Holtz added, “With the collapse of the traditional news business, MDiTV is a new model for professional journalism in an Internet age.”
The network’s content is designed for patients and providers alike. MDiTV’s mission is to engage, educate, and empower.
