"THE BILL CUNNINGHAM SHOW," the TV talk show series starring the CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI host, appears to be a go for FALL with the announcement that TRIBUNE BROADCASTING and ITV STUDIOS AMERICA, the U.S. arm of the U.K.'s ITV network, will partner to produce the show. WILLIE will be trekking to NEW YORK's NEP PENN STUDIOS to shoot the TV show. Veteran daytime producer KIM BRECHKA, a former co-Executive Producer of MONTEL WILLIAMS' TV show, will serve as Executive Producer.
"As an attorney, highly rated radio host and family man, BILL brings a unique perspective to the everyday problems viewers around the country are facing," said SEAN COMPTON, President of Programming and Entertainment for TRIBUNE BROADCASTING. "'THE BILL CUNNINGHAM SHOW' is an opportunity for TRIBUNE to get back into original programming production and will be a strong complement to the successful daytime talk programs currently airing on TRIBUNE stations."
"TRIBUNE BROADCASTING is an ideal partner for ITV STUDIOS AMERICA in this venture, with a long history of quality talk programming and a strong station line up," ITV STUDIOS AMERICA CEO PAUL BUCCIERI added. "BILL is an insightful and popular personality and we look forward to introducing him to a bigger and broader audience."
