West Michigan: Newsmakers May 4, 2008




Grand Rapids Press:

"Take Five," WZZM-TV's popular local talk show, will make several significant changes later this summer. Beginning Aug. 25, the show will expand from 30 minutes to one hour and move from 4:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays. The show -- hosted by Catherine Behrendt and Stephanie Webb -- also will add a new talent, Tara Kuhnlein. A Hope College graduate, Kuhnlein previously was an intern for "Take Five." Station management believes the "Good Morning America" lead-in will be strong and provide a nice flow to local programming. The game show "Deal or No Deal" will follow "Take Five" at 10 a.m. "The expansion ... will double the amount of time to do a variety of segments and will allow us to breathe," Behrendt said. Janet Mason, the station's president and general manager, looks forward to having more time: "We can use the time to delve into topics and keep everything local, local, local"...
