Syndication on plate at HRTS

Luncheon's panelists to include Springer, Norville, others

The Hollywood Radio and Television Society has finally made it into syndication.

For the first time, the org will hold a newsmaker luncheon next Wednesday on the topic of syndication — despite the HRTS’ long history and the financial influence syndication has held in the TV biz.

Panelists include talk ringmaster Jerry Springer; “Inside Edition” anchor Deborah Norville; Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution prexy Dick Robertson; Big Ticket Television president Larry Lyttle; and John Moczulski, veep of programming and marketing at CBS TV Stations.

Former WNBC, WCBS and New York Post news maven Jerry Nachman will moderate the event, to be held April 26 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

“The firstrun syndication business is every bit as dynamic and lucrative as any part of our industry,” said event co-chair Andy Friendly, president of programming and production at King World Prods. “I hope the HRTS will add this program to its list of season perennials.”
