PREMIERE NETWORKS has reversed course and will continue to syndicate the RANDI RHODES SHOW through 2014, the company informed affiliates TODAY (11/15). The arrangement reverses the announcement earlier this week that the show would be leaving PREMIERE (NET NEWS 11/13).
Spokesperson RACHEL NELSON confirmed to ALL ACCESS a report in POLITICO that the syndicator has signed a deal to continue distribution of the show for one year with possibility of extending the arrangement.
VP/Affiliate Relations PETER TRIPI e-mailed affiliates, saying, “In a happy turn of events, we are pleased to announce that PREMIERE NETWORKS will continue to produce and distribute THE RANDI RHODES SHOW In an industry of constant change, it’s a pleasure to provide good news about a talk talent we think so highly of. We apologize for any inconvenience the previous announcement caused, but look forward to a very successful 2014 with The RANDI RHODES SHOW."
