It looks like WBBZ-TV is planning to do a local version of the female talk shows on network television, “The View” and “The Talk.”
Station owner Phil Arno announced today that the hourlong “Daily Buzz 716” will soon premiere on the station primarily known for carrying old television shows via MeTV.
The show dealing with timely issues eventually will air live at 10 a.m. Monday through Friday from the station studios in the Eastern Hills Mall.
The list of regular participants includes retired Supreme Court Judge Penny Wolfgang, actresses Mary Kate O’Connell and Kim Piazza, WBLK-FM radio personality Adrianna Gamble, Connie Caldwell of the Buffalo History Museum and “Off Beat Cinema,” Mercedes Wilson of “For Our Daughters,” automotive expert Lauren Fix, and Arno’s wife, Mary, an author and former newspaper journalist.
No start date has been announced.
