Business & Entertainment Editors

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 2, 2002

New episodes of Naked News TV! will air on Australia's FOXTEL and AUSTAR cable and satellite television weekly beginning Saturday, October 5, at 11:15 p.m on The Comedy Channel. The weekly television news infotainment program delivers both the serious and lighter side of the news in an energetic, fast-paced style.

Each edition of Naked News TV! begins with Roxanne West, lead anchor, who gradually disrobes as she reads the news. Ms. West is followed by the Naked News team of women who report, in the nude, on current events, fringe news, life and leisure topics, technology, sports and Hollywood gossip. The cast includes Holly Weston, Lily Kwan, Sandrine Renard, Erin Sherwood, Athena King, Brooke Roberts, Michelle Pantoliano and Erica Stevens.

Naked News TV! is the first Internet news program to successfully go from the web to cable television, airing first on Viewer's Choice in Canada on September 7, 2001, and making its American debut Friday, December 7, 2001 on iN DEMAND pay-per-view. Naked News TV! and Naked News.com are produced in Toronto, Canada. For information about Naked News, go to www.nakednews.com. For information about FOXTEL: go to www.foxtel.com.au.

"Time Magazine said we had the best International News this side of the BBC," said Executive Producer, David Warga. "Now we hope to inform and entertain the other side of the globe."
