WPIX Tries Out Studio Audience For Morning News

The New York Daily News reports WPIX will try out a studio audience next Monday as a way to boost ratings during February sweeps. The crowd, expected to total 22 people, will be made up of guests selected from an online contest:

Fans of the newscast, anchored by Sukanya Krishnan and Frances Rivera, can enter the contest at the station’s website.

The station will do the 8 a.m. hour of the morning news with the audience present and the anchors are expected to interact with the crowd.

That hour of the show tends to be lighter spirited, and is often geared to subjects that might interest women, like fashion and parenting. Monday is also a holiday, so station brass hope viewers not normally at home might take a peek.
