Iyanla loves L.A.


Buena Vista Television-distributed strip Iyanla has cleared No. 2
market Los Angeles on NBC-owned KNBC-TV.

Tom Cerio, the studio's executive vice president of sales, said nabbing
KNBC-TV is a coup, calling it 'one of the top stations in the country.'

Iyanla -- hosted by best-selling self-help author Iyanla Vanzant and
executive-produced by ABC veteran Barbara Walters -- is clustered on several ABC
owned-and-operated stations (The Walt Disney Co. owns ABC and Buena Vista),
including WABC-TV New York and KGO-TV San Francisco

Apparently, it was difficult for Buena Vista to get ABC stations across the
board to sign up for Iyanla because of already-packed schedules. It's
unclear where the show will be slotted on KNBC-TV.
