"With an intriguing balance of human interest stories, hard-hitting investigative reports and celebrity and pop culture features we have established a unique niche in the highly competitive newsmagazine genre," Lachman continues, "Of course, we wouldn't be entering our 20th season without our 5 million plus viewers tuning in daily."
