major changes are coming to CN8 in the fall.
First, the 1 p.m., 7 p.m., and 10 p.m. news shows will discontinue as
of August 18. The news anchors
for the three shows – Gwen Owens, Kevin Walsh, and Arthur Fennell will all
be reassigned to new shows. Fennell
will get his own nightly 10 p.m. show, “Art Fennell Presents.”
Morning” with Connie Colla and Greg Coy will add an hour and air from 7 –
10 a.m. “Backstage with Barry
Nolan” will air weeknights from 8 – 9 p.m., and “Money Matters Today”
with Mary Cariacioli will move to 6 p.m. “It’s Your Call with Lynn
Doyle” will continue at 9 p.m. Beginning in September, Gregg Murphy will
host a live one-hour panel-based sports show at 7 p.m.
At 11 p.m., “Out of Bounds” will become a live hour-long show from
Boston, Massachusetts with new co-hosts John Carchedi and Phil Burton.
Lou Tilley will no longer be a full-time employee of CN8.
reason for all the changes is because CN8, which currently is available in
seven million homes from Maine to Maryland, will be expanding to the
Washington, D.C. market in the fall.
some of the CN8 news reporters should send their tapes and resumes to Fox29.
According to industry sources, news director Holly Gaunt announced to
the staff last week that the station will launch an 11 a.m. show in October.
The long-discussed 5 p.m. newscast may begin in January.
Richie and Fantasia will headline the annual “Sunoco Welcome America”
celebration on 6ABC tonight at 7 p.m. Dave
Roberts and Cecily Tynan host.
“Good Day Philadelphia” Hollywood correspondent Molly Mayock wrote and
produced a couple of episodes of the upcoming series “Fugitive Strike
Force” set to air in the fall on the Discovery Channel.
