Will Hershey Be Next Sponsor to Give ABC The Kiss Off Over Soap Murders?

Publish date:

There may be a smile in every Hershey bar, but I bet President of Disney-ABC Television Group Anne Sweeney doesn't have a grin on her face this morning, thanks to the incompetence of her Daytime Chief Brian Frons, as well as his inept PR and marketing execs.

Pennsylvania's Patriot-News has an article up about soap fans contacting Hershey Co. asking them to boycott ABC over the cancellations of classic soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live. While a rep for Hershey wouldn't discuss the fans' outreach to the company with the newspaper, buzz is growing that Hershey may follow Hoover's lead. Now wouldn't that just be the sweetest revenge?
