MARION, INDIANA – Ava Zinn announced Thursday that she is planning to relaunch the popular television news discussion site INNewsCenter.
The site will be debuting on November 1, 2014. The site makes a triumphant return for Zinn who launched and ran INNewsCenter from 1999-2011.
“It’s absolutely an amazing feeling to be going HOME to my old friends and colleagues and firing up the ‘Covering Indiana’s 92 Counties and Beyond … AGAIN!” Zinn said.
“I’m excited to be back to the TV news biz and with the success with Vote for the Girls, INNewsCenter makes an excellent companion,” Zinn noted. “I had a substantial following with the old INNewsCenter (1999-2011), and I’ve had a lot of questions asked about ‘What happened to INNewsCenter?’ ‘Is INNewsCenter coming back?’ In 1999, there was no American Idol, no Vote for the Worst, no smart phones, all those things. When I launched INNewsCenter with my web site that has evolved to AvaZinn.com, I attracted a cross-over audience while bringing a fresh perspective to television news and getting a woman’s perspective since I’m transitioning to a female. That same need in the market exists today as when INNewsCenter originally launched. I’m are looking forward to the same success with my seasoned expertise and appeal in this genre.”
Ava Zinn’s commitments with ‘Vote for the Girls’ since the original American version launched in April 2010 and the British counterpart launched in June 2013, reinvigorated the desire to get back on the TV news discussion biz. Zinn commented on her Facebook page, “Closing INNewsCenter on June 30, 2011 has the second biggest regret I’ve ever made in my life.”
While the original INNewsCenter ran from November 1, 1999 through June 30, 2011, the site featured changes in the television news industry from the ten markets covering Indiana’s 92 counties and significantly viewed markets in those beyond Indiana’s state line (notably Lexington, KY; Grand Rapids, MI; Toledo, OH; Rockford, IL; Detroit, and Peoria, IL in the 2010’s) and primarily Indianapolis and Fort Wayne markets, which INNewsCenter only featured from the site’s debut until 2004. Here is a look at some of INNewsCenter’s most memorable moments from the popular web site.
