WLS-Channel 7's "190 North" narrows new correspondent field


X00198_7.JPGThe search goes on. Janet Davies, the host and executive producer of WLS-Channel 7's "190 North" program is being very thorough in her search for a new correspondent to replace the departed Lou Canellis on the weekly,lifestyle show. That search began last fall, and Davies told us she has finally narrowed the field of candidates to three, all of whom will be
featured in new "190" shows to be broadcast in upcoming weeks. Davies wants
to be sure each candidate understands what the job entails and how
comfortable they are with that. She also wants to gauge audience response.
Davies hopes to name the newest "190" on-air team member by mid-May. "It's
a hard task," said Davies, "because I truly hate disappointing anybody once
we choose."

I don't know how you make your selections of "People" or "Places to know, but my suggestion is "Erskine Reeves", Salon & Spa located in Glendale Heights, IL. I am a customer and just visited his new salon and was very impressed. It's classy,spacious and offers many choices of services for women and men.

The owner is a young, black man who has gone from a small salon to a larger place that offers services galor with a super atmosphere of welcoming, caring and wonderful service.

He is someone you want to know in a place you want to see.

Now that Oprah has anounced that she will be leaving in 2011, its not too soon to look for replacements.
I originally thought you would fill the bill but I dont think you like the hectic schedule. Lets face it what Oprah has done is total dedication that left no room for a husband and children.

I would suggest a team approach such as Regis and Kelly, might work best. Its just too much for one individual to carry for a long time. You could also try various hosts until one fits alone or as a couple. Maybe Oprah will select someone who is currently having their own show.

Hi Janet:

I was watching 190 North on Sunday/today where you mentioned "pixilist" where you can go on line to find things that people wanted to recycle/give away unwanted items. I could not find this web page or link.

I am looking for a computer monitor for my grandchildren.

Please help me.....thanks, Kathleen

Hi Janet:

We used to have the same nail technician (Beverly). Long time ago.
I am interested in getting some information about wedding venues. You presented this on one of your recent shows. Please provide information in which I can find out more about this at your earliest convenience, and thank you for your assistance.

To the writer who suggested Erskine Reeves. I just want to say I hav never had a worse experience. In my opinion, it is the worst salon I have ever been to. It is dirty, the staff is unprofessional and the service is subpar. You are better off taking your money elsewhere.
