TruTV Cutting In Session To Two Hours A Day

Turner Broadcasting’s truTV is cutting back on In Session, the channel’s daytime court news coverage, according to a spokesperson for the channel. Instead of airing live for six hours each weekday, In Session will now air for only two, and in a new format.

In Session currently airs from 9AM-3PM every weekday, but will shift to 9AM-11AM on March 4th. In Session anchor Vinnie Politan will anchor the new two-hour format. A handful of production positions have been eliminated.

In place of In Session, truTV will air replays of its primetime programs, along with acquired programming. The new lineup “is designed to provide a better flow into truTV’s early fringe and primetime lineup,” according to the spokesperson.

In Session is the last vestige of Court TV, which truTV replaced in 2008. In 2009 In Session shifted its production from New York to Atlanta, with HLN taking over programming responsibility for the block.
