CBS affiliate WDJT-TV (CBS 58)/MILWAUKEE is dropping CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WISN-A host MARK BELLING's SUNDAY morning TV show, according to the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL's TIM CUPRISIN, who reports that the TV station and BELLING were unable to reach a deal to continue the show. However, CBS 58 GM JIM HALL told CUPRISIN that he hopes that sponsors will be found to keep the show on the air.
The show had until JANUARY been supported by a barter deal between the TV station and CLEAR CHANNEL, but that arrangement ended and CBS 58 took over financial responsibility for the production. HALL said that the show won its time slot in the ratings.
