Atlanta Station Launching Newscast to Replace ‘Oprah’

Apr 27, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Atlanta’s ABC affiliate WSB-TV said it plans to replace "The Oprah Winfrey Show" with a new newscast, according to the station’s website.

The station will begin airing "Channel 2 Action News" in the 4 p.m. time slot beginning May 26, the day after "Oprah" goes off the air, the site says.

"Oprah says goodbye to Atlanta and the nation on Wednesday. It only makes sense to begin serving our viewers and the community with fresh news and information the very next day instead of airing a summer full of ‘Oprah’ reruns," said station Vice President and General Manager Bill Hoffman in the story.
