Tribune To Launch ‘Bill Cunningham’ In Fall

The syndicated radio host’s daily, hour-long TV talk show will debut on the Tribune stations in September.

Tribune Broadcasting today announced a production partnership with ITV Studios America to produce The Bill Cunningham Show, which will air on Tribune stations nationwide, including WPIX New York, KTLA Los Angeles and WGN Chicago beginning this fall. The Cunningham show had a test run on Tribune stations last summer.

The 60-minute program hosted by Bill Cunningham, an attorney and nationally syndicated talk radio host, will air Monday through Friday in daytime beginning September. The talk format will be topically driven, featuring a broad array of thought-provoking subjects. ITV Studios America will produce the show, which will feature a studio audience, at NEP Penn Studios in Manhattan.

Kim Brechka has been named executive producer. Brechka previously was co-executive producer of The Montel Williams Show and has a long career in daytime talk.

“As an attorney, highly rated radio host and family man, Bill brings a unique perspective to the everyday problems viewers around the country are facing,” said Sean Compton, president of programming and entertainment for Tribune Broadcasting. The Bill Cunningham Show is an opportunity for Tribune to get back into original programming production and will be a strong complement to the successful daytime talk programs currently airing on Tribune stations.”
