Viral videos show RightThisMinute, which has been airing in national syndication since fall 2013, distributed by MGM, has changed distribution partners, signing with Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution for fall 2016. In the first move, the show has been cleared on the ABC Owned Television Stations Group. The stations available have inventory as talk show FABLife has been canceled.
RightThisMinute is produced by MagicDust Television in Phoenix, Cox Media Group, Raycom Media and the E.W. Scripps Company. In addition to the ABC Owned Stations, the show will continue to air on the production partner stations, giving it a combined clearance footprint of 60% of the country and 18 of the top 20 markets, to date.
The 2016-17 season will mark its sixth year on the air and fourth in national syndication. Hosted by Gayle Bass, Charity Bailey, Christian Vera, Oli Pettigrew and Nick Calderone, RightThisMinute currently airs on 169 stations covering 87% of the country.
