Medical Doctor Interactive Television (MDiTV) has launched as an online television channel aimed at presenting the latest medical news. Founded by Robert Lazzara, MD, a cardiac surgeon, the channel is co-anchored by former CNN anchors Andrew Holtz and Cathy Marshall. According to an article on Medical Marketing & Media:
MDiTV also hopes to premiere live surgeries through partnerships with "founding member hospitals," and will broadcast medical meetings live, according to Lazzara. Surgeries and medical meetings will be presented in a way similar to how ESPN presents a sporting event, said Lazzara.
