"WKRP in Cincinnati" Reunion?
Just got an e-mail from "WKRP in Cincinnati" creator-producer Hugh Wilson saying that the "Today" show plans a "WKRP" reunion Friday. Tim Reid, Loni Anderson, Gary Sandy, Howard Hesseman and Wilson are supposed to be on the "Today" show at 8:30 a.m. Friday C9. 5).
I'm checking with NBC publicists to see if Matt and Meredith will be back in New York from Blacksburg, Va., by then, and if the reunion is still scheduled, in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre. A reunion would be so cool. If and when I confirm, I'll post an update here.
UPDATE: As of 2:30 today, "WKRP" reunion still on for Friday, says NBC publicist Lauren Kapp.
As for WKRP: The DVD release is Tuesday. Our big package of stories runs Sunday. I've talked to Hugh Wilson, Gary Sandy and local fans. We're also planning a poll and quiz.
FYI: Gary Sandy will be here Saturday as one of the grand marshals for the Downtown HopAround. It kicks off 6-7 p.m. Saturday at Sully's, at 7th & Race. For more details see
