Twentieth Television has cleared its syndicated strip “Geraldo at Large” in 10 additional markets throughout the U.S. for its Oct. 31 launch.

“Geraldo at Large” has been cleared in 55 percent of the country. Among the stations joining the Fox owned-and-operated stations in clearing the half-hour news program hosted by Gerlado Rivera are KPIX-TV in San Francisco (CBS), WXIN-TV in Indianapolis (Fox), independent KUSI-TV in San Diego, WCNC-TV in Charlotte, N.C. (NBC), WFLX-TV in West Palm Beach, Fla. (Fox), KOB-TV in Albuquerque, N.M. (NBC), KGPE-TV in Fresno, Calif. (CBS), WSJV-TV in South Bend, Ind. (Fox), WUPW-TV in Toledo, Ohio (Fox), and KGBT-TV in Harlingen, Texas (CBS).

“Geraldo” is being produced live in New York. Twentieth announced in September it was going forward with the new strip after pulling the plug on a national rollout of “A Current Affair,” which had been airing only on selected Fox O&Os.
