The talk show hosted by veteran television journalist Tamron Hall, the former national news anchor for NBC News, has now sold in 50% of the U.S. television market. The syndicated daytime show remains on track for a fall 2019 launch.
The program is being distributed by Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, the global content sales and distribution arm of The Walt Disney Company.
The company just announced that it has concluded a deal to license the program in 24 Hearst Television markets for fall 2019. The stations include WCVB-TV Boston, WMOR-TV Tampa, WESH-TV Orlando, KCRA-TV Sacramento, WTAE-TV Pittsburgh, WBAL-TV Baltimore, KMBC-TV Kansas City, WLWT-TV Cincinnati, WISN-TV Milwaukee and WPBF-TV West Palm Beach, among others.
“These Hearst Television stations will join the previously announced ABC Owned Television Stations Group as part of the 2019 fall lineup,” the company announced. “To date, the collective clearances now bring the show’s reach to 50% of U.S. television households, including eight of the top 10 markets.”
Jed Cohen, executive vice president and general sales manager, U.S. Content Sales and Distribution, Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, commented: “We are excited to once again be in business with our long-term partners and couldn’t be more pleased that Hearst has placed its confidence in Tamron Hall’s return to daytime television. These Hearst stations are among the finest in broadcast television, and their commitment clearly places Tamron in the best environment for success in 2019.”
