Par firms up ‘Hard Copy’ renewals

Renews syndie newsmag strip through 1999 in 19 of top 20 TV markets

Paramount Domestic TV has firmed up the future of “Hard Copy,” renewing the syndie newsmag strip through 1999 in 19 of the top 20 TV markets.

Speculation was that “Hard Copy” might be squeezed out of key timeslots next year by hot new syndie strips such as King World’s “Hollywood Squares” and Par’s own “Real TV.” “Hard Copy” will switch stations in a number of markets next year, including New York, Los Angeles (where it’ll move from KCBS to KCAL), Detroit and Miami.

John Nogawski, PDTV’s executive VP and general sales manager, said Monday that “Hard Copy” to date has been renewed in 85 markets covering 73% of U.S. TV households through the 1998-99 season.
