For instance, it’s “Be Nice To Your Local Affiliates” week on the CBS afternoon yakker “The Talk.”

WCBS anchor Kristine Johnson co-hosted Monday and WCBS anchor Chris Wragge appeared Tuesday.

The fun continues through next Monday as the guest list moves across the country.:

  • Thursday: Amelia Santaniello, anchor, WCCO, Minneapolis, Minn.
  • Friday: Irika Sargent, anchor, WBBM, Chicago, Ill.
  • Monday: Pat Harvey, anchor, KCBS, Los Angeles, Calif.

Oh, and the program’s co-creator and co-host, Sara Gilbert, announced yesterday she is leaving the show.

Another surefire boost to the numbers.

Quite the run-up to May.
