WABC in New York and Chicago's WLS aren't the only stations planning to fill the timeslot vacated by The Oprah Winfrey Show with local news. Atlanta's Channel 2 Action News has tapped Monica Pearson and John Bachman to co-anchor a 4 pm EST newscast.


In an interview with theAtlanta-Journal Constitution, the station's General Manager Bill Hoffman said while he appreciated how dedicated soap fans are, he will be picking up The Chew and The Revolution because the audience for soaps is aging and shrinking.
