CBS-3 is cancelling their noon newscast to make room for a new "daily, lifestyle program" -- Talk Philly, set to debut Monday October 18th.
The new thirty minute show will be hosted by Pat Ciarrochi and Ukee Washington who have co-anchored Eyewitness News at Noon since 1996. According to Jon Hitchcock, President and General Manager, “Talk Philly is our chance to offer viewers more health, consumer and lifestyle solutions with the advantage of in-studio guests, longer interviews and demonstrations.” The program gives CBS-3 the opportunity to showcase the arts and entertainment goings-on in the city.
Talk Philly will broadcast from a newly-constructed set that was created to resemble a cozy Philadelphia loft, allowing for casual interactive conversation between hosts, guests and the home audience. Liz Keptner will provide news updates within the program with Maria LaRosa providing weather.
