New Ebert movie review show to premiere in January

December 15th, 2010 in News

CHICAGO (AP) - Film critic Roger Ebert's new movie review television show has been cleared to air in 192 markets across the United States and worldwide on the Armed Forces Network.

A post on Ebert's Twitter feed this week says "Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies" will debut Jan. 21. The Armed Forces Network broadcasts to more than 1,000 outlets in more than 175 countries, U.S. territories and aboard U.S. Navy ships.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago Sun-Times critic lost his ability to speak and eat after cancer surgeries.

Ebert announced in September he would return to television using his computer voice on a special show segment called "Roger's Office." The half-hour review program will air weekly. It will feature thumbs up and thumbs down reviews made famous with his late partner Gene Siskel.
