Description by OLDIES.com:

Sportswriter Mark Miller (Stanley Clements) sent plenty of opponents crashing to the canvas in his former career as a boxer. But now he's in the greatest fight of his life, tangling with gangland heavyweights in a bid to clean up the fight game. Taking on one of the hottest sports-world issues of the '50s, "Hot News" has everything a fan of hard-boiled B's wants: gambling kingpins, punch-drunk pugilists, good-girl brunettes and good-time blondes in a taut, pared-to-the-bone tale of corruption and its consequences. The cast of familiar faces includes Veda Ann Borg (The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer), Ted de Corsia (The Enforcer), Gloria Henry (Alice Mitchell on TV's "Dennis the Menace") and former child star Scotty Beckett.

Product Description:

A rare foray into straight action-adventure by comedy director Edward Bernds, HOT NEWS stars Stanley Clements as ex-pugilist Mark Miller. Now working as a sports columnist at the newspaper run by Al Bragg (James Flavin), Miller takes it upon himself to expose the fight-fixing racket masterminded by gambler Rizzo (Ted De Corsia). Naturally, this puts Miller at the top of Rizzo's hit list, but one feels that virtue will triumph when the film's 61 minutes have run their course. Myron Healey, usually cast as a villain, essays the relatively sympathetic role of a boxer victimized by the ruthless Rizzo. Stanley Clements' leading lady is Gloria Henry, six years removed from her TV stint as Dennis the Menace's mom.
