PM Magazine

Show Summary

Welcome to the PM Magazine guide at TV.com. This was the first-ever magazine-format program. From its origins as Evening Magazine on San Francisco's KPIX, PM Magazine provided a lively mix of regular features: travel, health, cuisine. Within two years of its birth in San Francisco, the renamed PM Magazine went into national syndication, thanks to KPIX's owner, Group W Communications. Throughout America, network affiliates jumped at the chance to produce their own segments for this syndicated show. Various markets boasted their own PM Magazine legends, and among the most heralded was WJW (or, between April 1977 and September 1985, WJKW) in Cleveland. Many of that station's sequences were seen nationally. And its gallery of hosts included local music legend Michael Stanley. So loyal was WJW to the cause that they were the last station to run PM Magazine. The only trouble is, the very last edition may never have been seen. Literally. No one is sure, but it is believed that, due to compulsory coverage of the first U.S. war with Iraq, the last PM Magazine was pre-empted and never rescheduled. WJW tried replacing it with something called Cleveland Tonight, which Michael Stanley also fronted, but that didn't last eight months. The passing of PM Magazine marked the end of an era in television. Gone would be the days of pleasant journalism. But in 1998, KPIX brought back an upgraded Evening Magazine, which airs weeknights at 7:00 PT. That show, however, is the Bay Area's only.moreless
