TV Diner to Be Taken Off the Air by NECN
A popular restaurant review show on NECN is going to be leaving the airwaves.
According to a source earlier this evening, TV Diner is being canceled, with a Boston Globe article confirming this. The Globe says that a big shakeup is currently taking place at NECN, with the station apparently moving toward more of a news and weather-based format with less emphasis on lifestyle shows.
[September 30 update: It appears that TV Diner might not be quite done yet, as one post on its Facebook page from Friday says to "enjoy our last handful of show" while another from yesterday says that the show is going off the air "eventually. everything is up in the air" and a third post from today says in answer to the questions "How many more new episodes before the show ends? Will there be a finale wrap up episode?" "don't know yet. i will let you know as soon as i find out."]
TV Diner started out more than a decade ago, with Billy Costa of Kiss 108 at the helm from the start; Jenny Johnson joined the weekly food show a few years later.
