NBC10’s “10! Show” comes to an end Friday after 10 years.
Starting Monday, the 11 a.m. news will run until noon, wiping out the 11:30 to noon show, station GM Eric Lerner told staff on Wednesday. Lerner cited the station's commitment to strengthening its newscasts for the switch.
No on-air talent will be let go, but four dedicated "10!" show staffers could lose their jobs, though they are being encouraged to apply for other open positions at the station, says an NBC10 spokeswoman.
The “10!” show launched more than 10 years ago with Steve Levy and Sharon Reed. In 2004 meteorologist Bill Henley and musician Lauren Hart began broadcasting at 10 a.m. live from the Loews Hotel in Center City.
The show eventually moved to broadcast live from NBC10’s Bala Cynwyd studios trimming back in 2011 to 30 minutes.
Henley remains co-host along with reporter Jillian Mele. They had previously hosted along with LuAnn Cahn and prior to that Henley was partnered for several years with morning news co-anchor Lori Wilson.
