Beginning this month, Jeff Civillico will be hosting a weekly entertainment / news TV show called Las Vegas Good News that will tape in front of a live audience at The LINQ Promenade fountain stage every Thursday night from 5-8pm. Think Good Morning America meets The Tonight Show meets The Price Is Right. More on that below!
At the time of initial launch, the show will air weekends on Channel 13, the ABC affiliate in Las Vegas, and in-room throughout Caesars Entertainment properties (22,000+ rooms) and many other Strip hotels (Palms, Treasure Island, etc). We intend to expand into more regional markets throughout 2016 as the show gains traction. We are expecting the show to get some serious international distribution as well through our Production Company Vegas360's in-house global sales division. The show will have a large web / social presence, where additional content will be pushed out daily.
Las Vegas Good News combines elements of a live show AND a TV show. Each taping, in essence, is a big party out at The LINQ Promenade with live bands playing, entertainers performing, and interactive contests with opportunities for audience members to win prizes, swag, and discount offers. That weekly event will be filmed, chopped down, and spliced together with remote segments captured throughout the week to give each episode a live, fresh feel.
As the show's main host, Jeff will drive the 3 "anchor" segments each week:
High Roller PODcast: Celebrity interview during 1 spin on the High Roller. They have some BIG names lined up!
The News: With lovely co-host Stephanie and Jeff will run down this week's Vegas headlines in a way that is fun, engaging, and of course... a little different.
60-Second Wedding: They're partnering with a wedding chapel to help find a couple each week that wants to get married on TV in front of a live audience. And yes, you guessed it... Jeff will be officiating. The bride and groom will get to spin a prize wheel for their wedding gift where they can win anything from a new car to dinner at In-N-Out Burger. It's Vegas, after all :)
Jeff will be joined by a very talented cast of female co-hosts that will each cover a facet of Las Vegas (food, nightlife, conventions, etc.) and come onto the live show every couple weeks to present their segment with us on stage. Las Vegas Good News segments include: Three Courses and a Glass of Wine, Who's Who... And Do We Really Care, Vegas Weather, We Told You So, Don't Make the Same Mistake Again, Win a Million Bucks, Let’s Rock The LINQ, and Las Vegas Charity of the Week.
