Word on the street er, MySpace is that KC is getting a new late-night talk show. Executive Producer Darron Story tells the Pitch
that KCPT Channel 19s After Hours
will combine elements of the Letterman-Leno-Kimmel style and Regis and Kelly. Story, who scored an R&B hit with the band Lo-Key in the early 1990s, will co-host After Hours
with the much younger Cara Kahn, of Real World: Chicago infamy.
The first episode is being taped August 14 and may feature Mayor Mark Funkhouser as a guest. But it could be a little stale by the time its broadcast. At press time, Story couldnt confirm which local station would carry After Hours, but he says it will air Saturday nights starting in October. All episodes will be recorded at KCPTs studio. To be in the audience for the first show, e-mail tickets@after hourskc.com. For more information, see myspace.com/kcafterhours.
