Bill Cunningham TV Show Will be Kinder, More Gentle

It will be a less sensational version of The Bill Cunningham Show than first planned when syndicated radio talker and WLW Cincinnati personality Bill Cunningham debuts his new Tribune syndicated television talk show in the fall. Originally titled Big Willie under the old Randy Michaels Tribune regime, The Bill Cunningham Show will now be less “Jerry Springer” and more “Phil Donohue,” meaning less “strippers” and more “issues.”  The show’s location will change as well, with the broadcasts moving from Stamford, Connecticut to New York City, taping at the NEP Penn Studios in Midtown Manhattan. While in New York, Cunningham will continue to host his show on Clear Channel’s WLW-AM (700) by working from the Clear Channel radio studios  just blocks from where the TV show will be taped.

The Bill Cunningham Show produced by Tribune in partnership with ITV Studios America will air on Tribune stations nationwide, including PIX11 New York, KTLA Los Angeles and WGN Chicago beginning in Fall 2011.
