NEW YORK, March 8 (UPI) -- Sixteen years after providing commentary during the rape trial William Kennedy Smith, Star Jones is returning to New York-based Court TV.
Jones, a former Brooklyn prosecutor, will serve as executive editor and talk show host of an as-yet-unnamed daytime show is to run live daily, Variety said Thursday. The show will deal with crime and justice stories from the news pages and pop culture.
"The public is fascinated by the intersection of the legal world and the pop-culture world and we hope to tap into that fascination as part of our overall strategy to broaden the appeal of the network's daytime lineup," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment.
Jones left ABC's "The View" last spring after her relationship with co-host Barbara Walters soured. Before her nine-year stint on "The View," Jones was a correspondent for "Inside Edition" and NBC's "Today" and "Nightly News."
