Washington, D.C. (February 22, 2016) – "The Jet Set", the first-of-its-kind travel-themed talk show, will be available for first run syndication on March 5, 2016 as a half-hour weekly barter show. Extremely station friendly, "The Jet Set" will produce 50 original episodes per year with only two repeats as opposed to the usual 26/26. CBS radio personality and former Daily Buzz host, Jessica Reyes, along with CNN travel personalities and former Daily Buzz correspondents, Gailen David and Bobby Laurie, host in studio from a custom airplane-wing desk on a "jet set" partially constructed with actual airplane components from a Boeing 747.
The three veteran television personalities take viewers on adventures from around the world to around their own block, dish the latest in celebrity getaways, news, gadgets and share their knowledge on how to get the most out any trip. The show will capitalize on David's 25 year and Laurie's 10 year former flight attendant and travel industry careers, making them the only travel hosts on television with actual industry experience.
"We wanted to create a travel show format that everyone could relate to," Bobby Laurie said.
