Katie Couric Show Skips Evansville Channel Listings

WAWV. WHAS11. WSIL. WNKY-CBS. KMOV. WSMV.  Those are a few of the stations around the region which will air Katie Couric’s new ABC-produced self-titled talk show, which premiered Monday afternoon.


You’ll note that none of these stations are located in Evansville.


Instead, Evansville’s ABC affiliate, WEHT Local, will air The Jeff Probst Show.  Now, in my opinion, Probst is a good guy, but why WEHT would choose his program over something the network came along with is beyond me, especially when so many other stations around us were eager to get on board with Katie.


Even a spot on Local 7 WTVW would’ve worked.


But, incredibly, Katie’s nowhere to be found if all you get is Evansville local channels.


I’m not alone in wondering why she’s not here.  Several readers have expressed dismay that they won’t get the chance to watch the show, so they’ve created a Twitter hashtag: #BringKatieToEville.


My feeling is that it’s worth a shot to draw some attention to the situation, so I’ve joined up.  Would you like to watch Katie?  If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag above.  If you’re on Facebook, leave a message on my page.  You can also email me or leave a comment below.  I’ll get them all together and we’ll see what kind of demand there is.

Hopefully it’ll make something happen.
