Sources say Sinclair and Tribune have agreed to carry the show from Dr. Phil McGraw and his son Jay, first announced in June 2015, giving it the clearances it needs to get off the ground this fall.
Tribune, Sinclair Pick Up Daily Mail TV Show
Nearly two years ago, the U.K.-based Daily Mail said that it was teaming with Dr. Phil McGraw and his son Jay on a syndicated magazine show based on the tabloid website.
It appears that those plans are finally coming to fruition.
Sinclair and Tribune have agreed to carry the show, giving it the clearances it needs to get off the ground this fall, according to informed sources.
Tribune reaches 44% of the TV homes; Sinclair, 39%. However, the groups have overlapping stations in several markets, including Washington, Seattle, St. Louis and Portland, Ore. The overlaps reduce the groups’ combined coverage.
CBS Television Distribution is handling distribution.
