JUDGE JACKIE GLASS JOINS "SWIFT JUSTICE" AS NEW HOST

Production of show moves to Los Angeles from Atlanta as Nancy Grace Exits

LOS ANGELES - May 24, 2011 - Las Vegas Judge Jackie Glass will join the #1 new syndicated series of the season SWIFT JUSTICE as the new host in season 2, debuting this September.

Glass is best known as the no-nonsense judge who presided over the case that sent O.J. Simpson to jail for his role in an armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel in 2008.

Production of SWIFT JUSTICE, which was recently nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program, will move to Los Angeles from Atlanta. Current host Nancy Grace will be leaving the show.

"I am so proud of the work we have done on SWIFT JUSTICE," Grace said. "Leaving such a successful show was a tough decision, but, with the increased requirements of the production's relocation to Los Angeles, it became challenging to balance my most important job -- mother to John David and Lucy back home. I will miss the California sunshine for now, but I will be back soon."

"SWIFT JUSTICE has had an incredible freshman year, and we're thrilled to have been nominated for an Emmy earlier this month," said executive producer John Terenzio. "I want to thank Nancy for all her contributions toward making the show a success. We are sad to see her leave, but we respect her decision to do what's best for her family. At the same time, we're excited to introduce viewers to another true original Judge Jackie Glass - we are confident our viewers will enthusiastically embrace her."

"I am thrilled to be joining SWIFT JUSTICE,'' said Glass. "I've always admired Nancy and her inherent sense of justice, and I'm honored to take her spot behind the podium. I'm looking forward to working with John Terenzio and CBS to continue producing a quality show that keeps viewers entertained and engaged."

Glass has been a District Court judge in Clark County, Nevada, since 2003, presiding over criminal and civil cases. She's known for her work in several high-profile trials, including Simpson's, as well as her no nonsense courtroom style and "get-it-done" attitude.

Before she was elected to the judgeship, she spent 18 years as a lawyer in private practice, including 12 years at Wolfson & Glass, a firm she founded with her husband, Steve Wolfson.

Initially, Glass thought she wanted to be a journalist, not a lawyer. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a journalism degree in 1978 and moved to Las Vegas to work as a radio news reporter, which led to gigs as a television anchor and crime beat reporter. Covering crime sparked an interest in the law, which changed her career path. She attended the University of San Diego School of Law where she earned her juris doctorate in 1984 and subsequently passed the Nevada Bar.

SWIFT JUSTICE debuted as the #1 new syndicated show in September 2010 and has held that spot ever since. In just its first year, the show received an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program."

SWIFT JUSTICE is produced by Swift Justice Productions, Inc. and is distributed by CBS Television Distribution. John Terenzio is executive producer and Lou Dennig is senior supervising producer. CBS Television Distribution is a unit of CBS Corp.
