    Count me in! I enjoyed Fairman’s occasional podcasts and those weekly shows related to TOLN but… well…

    Anyway! This is great news. The more broadcasters, cablecasters and streamers hear the passion we have for daytime drama then perhaps the genre can maximize this resurgence after a decade of cancellation carnage. I still dream daytime will have new dramatic programming in the future. It is too important a daypart to plaster with repetitive chat show chin music, lame reruns, dismal court shows, and derivative rehash.

    Let’s talk about it, Michael!
