Posted: 19 Aug 2012

Media Bistro, 14 Aug 2012, Jerry Barmash: "Freelance reporter Francesca Maxime dropped her instant visibilty with WPIX/Channel 11. The Harvard educated Maxime joined Ebru TV as a weekday anchor. 'It’s pretty much all international news, like a BBC America or Al Jazeera English,' Maxime tells FishbowlNY. For now, New Yorkers hoping to see Maxime’s anchor exploits need cable provider RCN. However, the New Jersey-based channel is also broadcast in Africa and Europe."
