“The Meredith Vieira Show” has been sold to the NBC Owned Television Stations for its Fall 2014 debut, NBCUniversal announced today.
It is not a surprise that the NBC Owned Station Group would be the first to pick up the show, which will be produced and distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution. In a statement announcing the news, NBC Owned Television Stations president Valari Staab said the group “couldn’t be happier to welcome Meredith Vieira to our 10 stations.”
“”With her genuine warmth, intelligence and likeability, as well as her extraordinary ability to understand and connect with viewers, Meredith is a great addition to our daytime lineup,” Staab said. “We look forward to the Fall of 2014.”
Vieira’s daytime talk show will be produced in New York City from a set that resembles her home. It will air on the NBC owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Miami, San Diego and Hartford.
