It’s O-Day +1. The first day in 25 years stations across the country are not airing “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” In Chicago, which is O-town, “Windy City Live” took to the air at 9am, with video of …. Oprah. “As Oprah ends 25 years and says goodbye, we say hello, Chicago,” said hosts Val Warner and Ryan Chiaverini, then in unison, “This is the very first Windy City Live!”
In Philadelphia, in Oprah’s old slot, it’s the new “Action News at 4,” with the same WPVI theme music used since 1972. New newscasts also debuted in New York, Raleigh and Atlanta and will later today in several other markets as well.
