Fall 2019 Syndication with Kelly Clarkson and Tamron Hall; Remembering Kaye Ballard of The Mothers-in-Law

Kelly Clarkson and Tamron Hall

The new talk show battle is on! ABC and NBC owned stations will battle it out next fall. Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, a segment of The Walt Disney Company, continues to secure outstanding station clearances for its new syndicated daytime talk show hosted by Tamron Hall with over 70% of the U.S. sold. In addition to the previously announced ABC Owned Television Stations Group and Hearst Television stations, the show has been licensed to top stations from leading broadcast groups for fall 2019, including Cox Media Group, Sinclair Broadcast Group, The E.W. Scripps Company, Meredith Corporation, Tribune Broadcasting, Gray Television and Nexstar Media Group, among others. Visionary producer Bill Geddie (The View) has been named executive producer of the new syndicated daytime talk show hosted by Tamron Hall.

The new nationally syndicated daytime program The Kelly Clarkson Show has been sold in more than 80% of the U.S. for its fall 2019 debut. As previously announced, this new daily, one-hour talk show starring Kelly Clarkson, a multi-talented, Grammy Award-winning artist, will air as the lead-in to Ellen on the NBC-owned television stations (replacing Steve on their stations). The Kelly Clarkson Show will also air on leading station groups across the country, including Scripps, Hearst, Meredith, Sinclair, Gray, Hubbard, Cox, Tegna, Nexstar, Capital, Dispatch, Graham Media, Block, Watermen, Weigel, Quincy, Bahakel and Bonneville. Newly added major market stations include KOMO Seattle, WXYZ Detroit, KTVK Phoenix, WKYC Cleveland, WBAL Baltimore, WTVF Nashville, WDRB Louisville, WJXT Jacksonville and many more. Clarkson is bringing her enthusiastic, funny and unfiltered voice to daytime TV. In her new talk show, Clarkson uses her gift of connection to unite people, from all walks of life, into a funny and very real "weekday hang." Coupled with heart-warming stories, live musical performances, games and big surprises, The Kelly Clarkson Show seeks to uplift the daytime viewer and make the world a little bit smaller by reminding everyone of all the good things we have in common.
