FACEBOOK WATCH WANTS YOUR ATTN:

When “Undivided ATTN” debuts next month as one of the offerings of fledgling Facebook Watch, what we are told to expect from the weekly program is focus on a single issue, presumably giving the audience greater context and background about a major news story or exploring a subject that’s timely.

“In a week like this one, we could be talking about the history of our relationship with North Korea or how the trade wars could have an impact on American pocketbooks and wallets and jobs,” said ATTN co-founder Jarrett Moreno. “It’s also summer break. What’s the summer job market looking like for high school and college students.”

The program will achieve this with a host lineup familiar at least to the digital-first generation – which is not us, admittedly: model and YouTube personality Hannah Stocking; Mexican influencer, vlogger, activist and model Juanpa Zurita; comedian and co-author of “The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin’ Dixie Outta the Dark;” Trae Crowder; and internet personality, actress and singer Lele Pons.

See what we mean?

We might have to check this out – if we can figure out how to find Facebook Watch.
