Inside Edition is a thirty-minute American television syndicated news magazine program. The show was originally a mix of tabloid crime stories, investigations, and celebrity gossip. It is one of the original "Big Three" American tabloid-style TV newsmagazines of the early 1990s -- the other two were A Current Affair and Hard Copy -- which fiercely competed with each other and is the only one of the three still on the air.

The first anchor of the program was David Frost, who was replaced after approximately three weeks with Bill O'Reilly. The current anchor is former Today anchor Deborah Norville, who took over for O'Reilly in 1995. Steve Kamer has been the show's announcer since its inception.

On August 29, 2011, Inside Edition began airing in high definition.
