The woman known as MOJ is bringing her show to KLAS (CBS).
Longtime KVVU (Fox) anchor and personality Monica Jackson returns to affiliate TV with “The Monica Jackson Show,” premiering in December on KLAS.
The show will air 1 a.m. Saturdays (late Friday night) as a 30-minute, talk-entertainment-reality show focused on Las Vegas performers and some of Jackson’s experiences in the city.
The show will originate from DragonRidge Country Club in Henderson and is self-produced by MOJ Productions, the company founded by Jackson and her manager/husband, Delano Jackson.
Jackson says her company is leasing the time slot on KLAS, and she and Delano have control over the operation. The Vegas TV veteran is confident she can find an audience — and vice versa — in that late-night weekend slot.
“Las Vegas is a 24/7 city, and having been on TV so long, I know it’s a city that watches TV around the clock,” Jackson said during a phone chat Thursday. “We are still working on a lot of specifics, but we will focus on Las Vegas and our ultimate goal is to be on the Strip.”
Jackson’s show is to run through 2020, and she will continue her “MOJ Show” podcast.
