Cooper’s new talk show will be joining the Channel 2 lineup next fall. TVNewsCheck.com reported Wednesday that show distributor Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution added 21 markets, including 11 where WESH parent Hearst has stations.
Just guessing here, but I suspect “Anderson” will get the 3 p.m. timeslot that Dr. Oz now occupies on WESH. Channel 2 will lose the good doctor next year to WFTV-Channel 9, which will put Oz in Oprah Winfrey ‘s 4 p.m. spot as the lead-in to its top-rated Eyewitness News.
One other interesting note: Fox grabbed Anderson for its owned-and-operate stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston … but not Orlando.
