Introducing… Tony Katz Tonight! (Videos)

Radio show host Tony Katz is launching a new internet based talk show,  Tony Katz Tonight, which promises to bring a new perspective to the news of the day and a fresh take on late night television.

Katz needs to raise $25,000 and has started a “crowdfunding” campaign to connect directly with fans.

“Late night TV is stale – it’s boring,” Katz noted in a press release, today. “The format hasn’t changed and the guest selection has gotten worse. Exactly how many vapid non-stars does America want to hear from? Johnny Carson used to smoke on the set. Now even talking about smoking can get you seven years in the PC gulag.”

Tony Katz Tonight is using Indiegogo to solicit the  funds needed to continue his endeavor.

“Contribution levels get people huge thanks, web links, personalized videos and a chance to be a part of one of the tapings”, Katz explained.

In an environment where media outlets are consolidating and programming is becoming homogenous, Tony Katz is pursuing an alternative path, proving that original content will thrive in a free market.  In addition to raising capital and awareness of the program, they are also pursuing traditional network distribution of the program.

Here are a couple of test run episodes:
