NEWSMAX NAMES A NEW EVP

Newsmax TV has tapped Elliott Jacobson as its news EVP of programming and chief content officer.

Newsmax, the brainchild of Trump pal Christopher Ruddy, targets boomers as its core audience.

Jacobson is trading in the same titles he held at RLTV, another boomer-centric outlet.

RLTV focused mainly on lifestyle programming so this will be an interesting change to watch unfold at Newsmax, which is, as the name implies, geared toward current events.
