WLNE Programming Change
Fri Jun 5 23:44:40 EDT 2009
WLNE (ABC 6, Providence) announced that they have suspended their programming agreement with King World. As of Monday this means "Dr. Phil", "Entertainment Tonight" and "Inside Edition" will no longer be seen on the station. The 5p hour (where "Dr. Phil" was) will be replaced with judge shows. At 7p will be another edition of ABC 6 News, followed by "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire". The track record for 7p newscasts seems to be rather dismal - is this truly a better option than another syndicated show?
Here's the announcement on the ABC 6 website: http://www.abc6.com/news/featurestory/47045507.html
