Debmar-Mercury is planning a sydie test of a new talk show in six cities starting in July, writes our friend Paige Albiniak in B&C.
According to the story, "Debmar-Mercury will launch the summer test of its new talk show, ‘Father Albert,’ on July 11 on Fox TV stations in six markets, a Fox spokeswoman confirmed. … The six markets are WNYW New York at noon, KTTV Los Angeles at 2 p.m., KDFW Dallas at 1 p.m., WTVT Tampa at 11 a.m., KMSP Minneapolis at 1 p.m. and KSAZ Phoenix at 1 p.m. The test is expected to run for five weeks.
The article adds that Fatehr Albert is "Father Albert Cutie [who] made international headlines when the then Catholic priest was caught kissing his girlfriend, Ruhama Buni Canellis, on a beach in his home town of Miami. Cutie left the Catholic priesthood, became an Episcopalian, and married Canellis in 2009."
