Court TV Ups Reporter Rowlands to Anchor

Court TV said it promoted Ted Rowlands to anchor, effective immediately.

Rowlands has been a field producer and reporter for the network since it was launched in May by Katz Networks, part of the E.W. Scripps Co.

“Ted is one of the most-seasoned true-crime journalists in the business and his insight, interviewing and reporting in the field since our launch have been outstanding,” said Court TV VP and managing editor Scott Tufts. “We’re thrilled to have him on the desk as the newest member of our first-class Court TV anchor team.”

Before Court TV, Rowlands worked at ABC News, CNN and local stations and worked on documentaries for ABC, BBC, Discovery ID and Turner Broadcasting.

He’s covered high-profile cases including the trials of O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Robert Blake and Phil Spector.

He focuses on revenue-generating activities, including advertising and distribution, as well as executive intrigue and merger and acquisition activity. Just about any story is fair game, if a dollar sign can make its way into the article. Before B+C, Jon covered the industry for TVWeek, Cable World, Electronic Media, Advertising Age and The New York Post. A native New Yorker, Jon is hiding in plain sight in the suburbs of Chicago.
