Pax TV inks George for daily ‘Day’

Sloan to co-host show based on magazine

MIAMI — Paxson Communications has signed with Hachette Prods. for daily half-hour “Woman’s Day,” led by veteran TV personality Phyllis George.

Based on the Hachette Filipacchi magazine of the same name, “Woman’s Day” will bow with the launch of Pax TV on Aug. 31.

George, a former Miss America, former first lady of Kentucky, author and TV regular, will co-host the show with former Manhattan assistant D.A. Sloan Lindermann.
