‘Page Six TV’ Test To Air On Seven Stations

The new gossip show will air on Fox’s WNYW New York, KTTV Los Angeles, WTXF Philadelphia, KDFW Dallas, WAGA Atlanta, WJBK Detroit and WTVT Tampa, Fla., beginning July 18.

Fox Television Stations has lined up seven of its stations for a three-week summer test of a new syndicated show produced in conjunction with the New York Post and its Page Six gossip page known as Page Six TV.

FTS announced the upcoming test — due to start July 18 — earlier this month. But the company was not ready to announce the participating stations until today. They are WNYW New York, KTTV Los Angeles, WTXF Philadelphia, KDFW Dallas, WAGA Atlanta, WJBK Detroit and WTVT Tampa, Fla.

The half-hour strip will feature the gossip page’s reporters and editors in “select” segments, FTS said, although the specific members of the show’s on-air team were not announced. The show will feature the same kinds of celebrity gossip stories that are the stock-in-trade of the Page Six newspaper section and its companion website, PageSix.com.

The Fox TV station group and the Post were once co-owned by the same company. But in 2013, the company was split into two separate companies — 21st Century Fox, encompassing all of the company’s non-publishing properties such as TV networks, studios and stations; and News Corp., which runs all of the company’s newspapers, including the Post.

Endemol Shine America is producing Page Six TV for the Fox group.

Article fails to state that after the split, both companies are still controlled by Rupert Murdoch and his son.

    I do not see stories stating Sumner Redstone controls BOTH CBS and Viacom in these stories either, so not sure why you find that so important.

    Not a big enough/important enough market to bother testing in.
