Exclusives That Aren’t: ABC Talks To US Open Winner Serena Williams… But So Does CBS

Tennis player Serena Williams won the women’s title at the U.S. Open yesterday, and today she is making the media rounds. Despite the fact that she is appearing on no fewer than five TV shows today, ABC’s “Good Morning America” decided to brand their interview with Williams at 7:41 AM as “Exclusive,” as pictured right.

Of course, “GMA” was not the only morning show to talk to Williams, or even the only show on ABC to talk to her. “CBS This Morning” also spoke to Williams less than an hour after “GMA” at 8:30. Williams also appeared at 9:17 on “Live with Kelly and Michael,” which, while technically syndicated, is produced by ABC and airs on the ABC O&Os.
