WLS-Channel 7's new morning show to be called "Windy City Live"

| 1 Comment

ABC-owned WLS-Channel 7's new live morning show has its co-hosts. Now it has a name -- "Windy City Live." The show will replace "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in the 9 a.m. time slot on Channel 7 when Winfrey completes her 25th and final season of the show in late May.

"Windy City Live" will be broadcast live from the Channel 7 studios in the loop in front of a studio audience. Ryan Chiaverini, WLS's current weekend sports anchor, and Valerie Warner, a morning show co-host and traffic reporter at Tribune Co.-owned WGN-Channel 9, were selected from among scores of candidates to co-host "Windy City Live."

The title of this show, "Windy City Live" will doom this show to local growth only. Filling the best known national t.v. show in history, with a local based show takes guts... be smart... this title will doom the show. Goodby yellow brick road.
