A new talk show has been gaining momentum ahead of its launch, which is on track for September. Deadline reports that “The Mel Robbins Show” has picked up clearances in 90% of the U.S.
The one-hour syndicated program comes from Sony Pictures Television, which partnered with Tribune on the launch. The program has also been picked up by Nexstar Media Group. Other groups that are on board include CBS, Cox, Hubbard Broadcasting, Meredith Corp., Scripps and Weigel Broadcasting.
Built around motivational speaker, life strategist and author Mel Robbins, the show is scheduled to bow Sept. 16.
John Weiser, president of first run television for Sony Pictures TV, is quoted saying: “Mel’s already built an enormous fan base through her social media platforms, best-selling books and by being the #1 female speaker in the world. Adding Mel’s television show to these already established platforms will enable her to speak to millions of people every day. With Tribune and Nexstar Media Group as our strategic partners we will be able to bring Mel’s transformative vision to new audiences.”
