Col TriStar TV gets big-market ‘Vibe’

Columbia TriStar TV Distribution’s upcoming latenight talk-entertainment strip “Vibe” has been sold to 160 stations reaching more than 88% of the country, including all top 10 markets and 45 of the top 50.

In addition to the Chris-Craft launch group and stations owned by Paramount, Sinclair, Sullivan, Qwest and Clear Channel groups, the show has also been sold to KTZZ Seattle, KOKH Oklahoma City, KPLR St. Louis, WNDY Indianapolis and KUSI San Diego. The debut date has not been set, but CTTD says it will probably go on the air this summer.

“Vibe,” which is based on the magazine of the same name, is hosted by Chris Spencer and executive produced by Quincy Jones and David Salzman. It is one of three shows vying for the young, urban latenight audience, and it is the only such show that definitely will be stripped this year.

Buena Vista is launching a latenight show with John Salley, which will start as a weekly on the Fox O&Os, with hopes of being stripped next year. Twentieth TV, however, is also developing a latenight strip for the Fox O&Os with Earvin (Magic) Johnson. Reps say only one of the three shows is likely to survive.
