FTVLive is a TV News Insider website that has been around since 2000.
We spent over the first decade of our existence being a pay site. If wanted to read the site? You had to be a member (or a hacker) to gain access.
On February 4, 2013 FTVLive came from out from behind a pay wall and is now offered up free to everyone. The sight continues to grow in web traffic each and every week. FTVLive has gotten thousands of followers on Social Media and the move to a free (sponsor supported) site has been a game changer.
FTVLive has become a must read for anyone that works or wants to work in TV News. We tell it to you straight with an edge, along with some humor (well at least we find it humorous) and don't pander to TV executives like many of the other so called insider websites.
