WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH 9, 2015 - RT America announces the launch of its latest live television program, "Watching the Hawks", which seeks to rescue the stories buried in the hype and faux outrage permeating our society and get to the real issues. The hosts, Tyrel Ventura, Sean Stone and Tabetha Wallace along with their guests are your eyes and ears on the ground in the world of media, politics and pop culture.

Through balanced conversations and honest debate "Watching The Hawks" is the place to get some real perspective no matter what your political leaning – from the war hawks to the isolationists – and, more importantly, every voice in-between.

"'Watching the Hawks" is for the person who feels disenfranchised from the political process, distrustful of a media that seems to be pandering to anyone but them, disillusioned by the financial markets - but hopeful for the future," said RT editor in chief Margarita Simonyan. "The show is a great addition to our RT America line-up."

Tyrel Ventura brings a fun, self-effacing swagger to the proceedings while speaking from the heart without fear of speaking truth to power. Sean Stone delivers an insatiable curiosity coupled with an academic's approach to finding the basic truths behind every story with his background in history from Princeton University and Oxford. Tyrel and Sean also created the online alternative news show "Buzzsaw" with Co-Host, Tabetha Wallace who brings an honest, main street approach to the issues with a street smart millennial edge. Her passion for the rights of the common man, her strong belief in honesty and her tough Midwestern attitude set her apart from the usual talking heads of mainstream media.

RT America's "Watching the Hawks" will hit the airwaves on March 23rd, broadcasting four days a week. Filmed out of RT America's Washington, DC headquarters, the subjects and issues addressed on "Watching the Hawks" are the ones overlooked and intentionally avoided by the mainstream media or buried under the sheer volume of information coming at us on a daily basis. "Watching the Hawks" aims to offer something different for the viewers who are tired of the same old narratives in news shows.
