What happens to Oprah’s 4-5 p.m. time slot after her final show on Wednesday, May 25? In many markets, stations will carry reruns of Oprah until the end of the season in September, but KGO ABC7 is filling that time period with news starting Thursday, May 26. The new hour of news, from 4 to 5, will be anchored by Carolyn Johnson and Larry Biel. Biel will continue to do the sports at 9 (on Channel 20) and 11 (on Channel 7), and Johnson will continue with her evening anchor duties. The additional hour of news means that Channel 7 will be airing three hours of news in early fringe, including “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” at 5:30.
