Fusion – the news, pop-culture and satire TV and digital network from ABC and Univision launching October 28 – today announced its daily morning program "The Morning Show" hosted by Globo journalist Pedro Andrade, Univision reporter Mariana Atencio and comedian Yannis Pappas.
Starting Tuesday, October 29, the weekday two-hour broadcast (7:00-9:00 a.m., ET) will join Fusion's programming lineup that will engage and champion a young and diverse America with a unique mix of original reporting, lifestyle content and comedy programming.
"The Morning Show" on Fusion will be filled with smart, edgy, funny and compelling stories. The audience will become a part of a free-flowing conversation that is high-energy and informative. The program will be a venue for newsmakers – from politicians and entrepreneurs to celebrities and entertainers – to reach the youngest, most diverse, and fastest growing audience in America. Pedro, Mariana and Yannis will also blend humor and analysis to tackle topics ranging from how the definition of the American Dream is changing for young Americans to asking questions like "is it possible to copyright a tattoo?'" or "what is the best year in music history?"

"Our viewers sleep with their smart phones by their side because they never want to miss a beat.
