Anderson Cooper Daytime Show to Air on FOX Stations

Anderson Cooper‘s syndicated daytime show has been sold in four of the nation’s top markets, B&C’s Paige Albiniak reports. FOX owned and operated stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston will carry the program beginning next fall. In New York, Cooper will air on Tribune-owned WPIX.

In addition to his role as co-founder and Chairman of Fox News and Fox Business, Roger Ailes is also Chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group, which means he likely signed off on the purchase of Cooper’s show on the local FOX stations.

So what will Cooper’s show be?

“Nobody is doing the non-Ellen portion of Oprah and that’s an interesting place to be,” Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution tells Albiniak.

Warner Bros.’ light-hearted Ellen is full of fun, wit and dancing, while CBS Television Distribution’s Oprah, which ends its storied run after this season, runs the gamut from fashion segments and celebrity chats to emotional interviews with crime victims and intellectual discussions with authors.
