As many General Hospital fans know there has been “rumors” on the web that some viewers have been told by their local ABC affiliates that General Hospital is going to be off their programming schedule as of June 2012.
So ABC Soaps In Depth went to some digging to see if that is true and came back with this information: “According to a rep in one major market, they have not received word that GH will be dropped from the line-up this spring. A spokesperson for another affiliate agreed, saying, “I haven’t heard anything about that, but I’ll carry GH as long as ABC gives it to me.” However, major affiliate did tell us this: it looks like they have been informed that GH will get a new time slot, but whether that’s in May or September remains to be seen.”
Now, a spokesperson for ABC Daytime says that there is no truth to the rumor that GH will be absent from the schedules of some affiliates this summer, and that those stations have not been saying so to viewers.
It clearly would make most sense that any new time slot change would come once September 2012 hits and the syndicated talker, Katie debuts in most markets, only time will tell. Stay tuned.
