HomeTVAll My ChildrenSHAKEUP AT MAJOR ABC AFFILIATE: New York’s WABC Announces Anchors for Newscast to Replace Oprah! Jamey Giddens April 26, 2011 All My Children, General Hospital, One Life to Live, Talk Shows, The Oprah Winfrey Show 9 Comments It looks like affiliates are about as trusting of ABC Daytime to transition to a post-Oprah and Erica era as soap fans are. A few months back, New York's WABC affiliate announced they would be filling the timeslot currently held by The Oprah Winfrey Show with a local news broadcast once The Mighty O signs off the syndication airwaves this May. According to TV Spy, Liz Cho, current 11 pm anchor, and David Novarro will anchor the new Eye Witness News…First at 4 newscast. This means instead of leading into America's most popular talk show in NYC, General Hospital will be airing before an untested early-evening newscast. Nothing like a little News, Weather and Sports In The Afternoon. 9 Responses alstonboy4315 April 26, 2011 Not interested……….. Final answer.

If there’s one thing this country needs is MORE NEWS!!!! 24/7 cable news/internet just isn’t satisfying my needs. So now we’ll have 2 1/2 hours straight of Channel 7’s specialty of shootings, murders, fires, and beatings. Actually 3 1/2 hours if you include General Hospital.
