More Ebert on local cable

Hmm, did we all see this coming? I just got an email from a publicist at Seattle public television station KCTS, telling me that the station is picking up Roger Ebert’s new movie-review show, “Ebert Presents At the Movies,” to play on Friday nights at 7:30 starting April 15. This is the station that, back in January, told me they weren’t picking up the show partly because of concerns that they’d have to interrupt it with pledge breaks. KCTS programming head Randy Brinson told me, though, that they were open to re-visiting the decision at a later date, and clearly they have done so. But they’re a little late to the game: KBTC, another local public television channel, announced a while ago that they would play “Ebert Presents At the Movies,” currently showing on that channel Sundays at 1:30.
