Poker Central is bringing a new show to its network, and it involves PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. PrimeTime Poker Report will premiere on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT. The show is scheduled to take place weekly, airing every Wednesday night.
PrimeTime Poker Report will feature the latest poker news, insight, and analysis about the industry's leading topics, plus regularly guests and co-hosts will join Peters on a weekly basis to provide an entertaining hour of poker talk, gossip, controversy, and plenty of laughter.
"Poker Central is excited to offer PrimeTime Poker Report each week to our growing TV audience of poker enthusiasts around the world," said Dan Russell, Senior Vice President of Programming at Poker Central. "The timely news, information, and commentary provided by Donnie and his team will be an extremely valuable addition to Poker Central's television lineup."
Farra Productions have been tapped to produce the show in Las Vegas, with co-executive producers Dave Farra and Matt Brown.
"Dave and I are long-time recreational players and fans of poker programming," said Brown. "We jumped at the opportunity to work with the visionaries behind Poker Central and the experts at PokerNews. PrimeTime Poker Report will become appointment television for everyone from the most casual observer to the hardcore grinder."
"I'm very excited for this new project," said Peters. "Fans of the PokerNews Podcast should know exactly what to expect, as the idea of the show spawned from the success of the podcast. It'll be fun and entertaining, but also informative. All parts involved have been working hard behind the scenes, from Dave and Matt at Farra Productions, to Poker Central, to my team here at PokerNews, and I look forward to the premiere on May 18."
In celebration of the show, Poker Central and PokerNews will be working together on a contest for audience members to win Poker Central prizes. More details on the contest will come leading up to the first episode of the show, but know that it will involve watching the first episode and answering some trivia questions after it airs.
