Cityline will begin airing in the United States beginning this September.
Rogers Media has partnered with PPI Releasing to distribute the acclaimed Canadian daytime talk series with Hearst, Graham, Raycom, and Weigh media groups to air Monday through Friday, reaching more than 10 million households in such U.S. cities, as Chicago, Kansas City, Jacksonville, and Birmingham.
The hourlong series is hosted by Tracy Moore and airs each weekday morning at 9 a.m. on City in Canada and is taped in Toronto, Ontario. Cityline covers the latest in home decor, food, fashion, health and beauty. Episodes are recorded a week prior to air date.
“The show’s authentic and relatable approach resonates deeply with audiences, and we’re excited to extend the brand to more North American households,” said College Watson, Senior Vice President of Television & Broadcast Operations at Rogers Media.
“With decades of proven success, Cityline has evolved into a format that covers every major topic of interest to today’s daytime audience, in ways that will surely resonate with Americans,” said Josh Raphaelson of PPI Releasing. “Our viewers will fall in love at first sight of Tracy Moore, Cityline’s terrific, genuine host.”
Bell Media’s The Social, which airs weekday afternoons on CTV, began airing in U.S. markets in September 2015 through PPI Releasing and Sony Pictures Television.
Launched in 1984, Cityline was previously hosted by Dini Petty and then Marilyn Dennis from September 1989 to May 2008.
