Online network to show live surgery

Share this article:

MDiTV launched an online network featuring daily medical news videos hosted by ex-CNN anchors Andrew Holtz and Cathy Marshall. Produced internally, the three- and four-minute news programs look like TV news segments, and cover medical news topics du jour.

The network will also present long-format programming, such as the Charlie Rose-inspired “Second Opinion” program, hosted by MDiTV founder and CEO Robert Lazzara, a cardiac surgeon. MDiTV also hopes to broadcast live surgeries through partnerships with hospitals and will cover medical meetings live. Both would be presented as ESPN does a sporting event, said Lazzara.
