Though not at the TCA Press Tour, two major syndicators have big news of their own:
– As expected, NBC Universal has renewed Jerry Springer and Maury on the Tribune stations that currently carries them until 2010. Sinclair stations in Pittsburgh, Columbus (OH), and Cincinnati also renewed the duo. Separately, Maury was also renewed on Tribune’s WGN-TV in Chicago and Sinclair’s KDNL-TV in St. Louis. Springer is carried locally on Fox’s WPWR-TV, but no word on any renewal.
-Warner Bros. has renewed Without A Trace in syndication for another two years, thanks to the CBS-owned stations.
