Will HLN Blow Its Launch Date For Carol Costello’s New Show?
Almost two months ago HLN announced that it was going to launch “Across America with Carol Costello” by the end of April.
Ok…it wasn’t really an announcement as in a public press release…it was an internal email from Ken Jautz that was leaked.
Still, HLN did nothing to shoot that date down once it was leaked.
Well guess what? It’s the end of April.
You know…the end of April when the show was supposed to launch? That end of Arpil?
Basically HLN has two days to announce the start date is Monday. Otherwise the show will not launch this month and HLN will have blown its leaked launch date. Since a Monday launch would mean a rough launch window with scant to no promotion time, my money is on it not launching this month.
Usually when this type of thing happens…and it doesn’t happen very often where a network leaks a launch date for a show that it winds up blowing…it’s because of things like the production staff isn’t all in place yet. We know it’s probably not a set problem because Newscast Studio just did a story on the debut of a revamped L.A. studio that CNNI is using which will also be used for Costello’s show.
