KATV to debut New View April 18

Source: Arkansas Democrat Gazette 7’s Daybreak morning show is undergoing a major re-vamping. In its new incarnation, it will be similar to ABC’s talk show, The View, with four female hosts.

They include current KATV employees Melinda Mayo and Beth Hunt and newbies Nicole Capri, most recently educational programs coordinator for the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, and Shareese Kondo, former Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reporter and University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s public relations coordinator. The show is slated to air 5 to 7 a.m. and debut April 18.

Current Daybreak hosts Julia Grayson, Steve Powell and Jason Harper have been bumped — Grayson demoted to general assignment reporter, Powell reduced to part time and Harper reportedly in limbo. Grayson confirms the changes and says Little Rock is her home but she’s "keeping her options open."
