‘Raising America with Kyra Phillips’ to Bow on HLN

“Raising America” a new daytime show hosted by Kyra Phillips will debut February 4 at NoonET on HLN, TVNewser has learned.

Phillips, a 13-year CNN veteran joined HLN last summer. Phillips field anchored HLN’s RNC and DNC coverage, got the first interview with David Petraeus following his CIA resignation all while developing the show. The mother of twins with Fox News senior national correspondent John Roberts, Phillips told us at the DNC the new show will be “news through the parent’s perspective.”

“I have spent my whole career covering wars, going to the South Pole, doing investigative pieces, doing high-profile interviews with world leaders,” Phillips said. “Now I am a mom, I am a mom in my mid-40s, and my husband, and my kids and my family are so important to me. I am taking the two things that I love, my journalism background, combined with being a mom, and I am going to fold that into the new show.”

HLN is increasingly using the theme of America in its shows. ”Making it in America” airs daily at 4pmET while Ty Pennington will host the monthly “American Journey” on the network.

‘Good Morning America’ Expanding to the Afternoon

ABC’s “The Revolution” is being canceled and replaced by an extra hour of “Good Morning America,” in the afternoon. The hour will broadcast live at 2pmET/1pmCT and will be hosted by members of the GMA team. TVNewser hears Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer will likely be the lead hosts along with Sam Champion and other GMA anchors and contributors. The existing GMA staff will produce the third, afternoon hour.

The show will run for at least 9 weeks this summer beginning in mid-June, ending its run around the time Kate Couric‘s syndicated show hits the airwaves on many ABC stations. Couric is not part of the expanded “GMA,” but insiders say don’t be surprised if she turns up from time to time.

Deadline, which first reported the story, also reports ABC’s lone daytime drama “General Hospital” is also being renewed.

“The Revolution,” which launched in January, is a lifestyle, encouragement and support show hosted by design expert Ty Pennington, style guru Tim Gunn, celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton, and therapist Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry.
