Vice World News is claiming to be the first global news publisher to launch an original show and channel on Twitch.
The two-hour show, co-hosted by Dexter Thomas and Samir Ferdowsi, will debut on August 23 and air Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00am-1:00pm ET.
The show will “offer a distinctive Vice News take on major news stories and highlight Vice News’ biggest scoops and investigations”.
