SAVANNAH — Coastal Georgia is getting a new hour of local television starting in September.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 16 at 9 a.m., WTOC will premiere a new hour of local daytime television with the series “Morning Break.”
The station describes the show as a fresh and informative live hour features today’s news and talk along with topics that make the most out of southern and coastal living.
The new series, anchored by Cyreia Sandlin, Ken Griner and Tim Guidera, will also include expert advice in a variety of topics such as cooking, home improvement, travel, health and more.
“Morning Break is just the next natural evolution in WTOC’s 65 years of covering and serving our communities. This hour of television will be a great showcase of all stories, people and events that make living in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry so special,” says Larry Silbermann, WTOC Vice President and General Manager.
WTOC News Director, Bari Soash said, “We want to create something that we feel this community both wants and needs. A blend between news and information, engagement and entertainment. A place to talk openly about important issues in our community, and in our everyday lives.”
The “Morning Break” anchor team also weighed in on the new show.
Sandlin said, “This is an opportunity to do something that has never been done in this market before. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”
Griner added, “It’s exciting to create a whole new show. As a hometown guy, it lets us focus on what makes living here so great!”
Guidera assures viewers, “While ‘Mid-Morning Live’ has been a great vehicle to discuss community events, ‘Morning Break’ will take it a big step further. Instead of just telling you about a road race, we might just start training for it. ‘Morning Break’ will be a far more active show.”
Also included in “Morning Break” will be featured content from WTOC’s lifestyle digital platform, Savannah Weekend, and viewer interaction through polls and social media.
“Morning Break” is one of the highlights to WTOC’s new daytime line-up beginning Monday, Sept. 16.
]On that date at 3:00 PM, WTOC will also premiere back to back episodes of “25 Words or Less,” hosted by Meredith Viera. This fun, celebrity driven game show is based on the popular board game.
