Quivers Talks Straight About TV Show
November 22, 2004

Robin Quivers

Robin Quivers was back on the air this morning as the Howard Stern Show returned from a Thanksgiving holiday hiatus, giving her an opportunity to address last week's rumor/news that she was leaving the show to start her own daytime talk show on television.

Quivers confirmed that she is in the development phase to create a pilot that could become a daytime talk show. She said her program will not be a "guest-driven" show, but be more of a "magazine" show for the daytime audience. While she didn't address this during the Stern Show today, the development deal is with Sony Pictures Television and could become a one-hour daytime show as early as next year.

"I didn't know what you were going to do in the next year," she told Stern after he questioned her about the possibility of doing a talk show. Due to Stern's uncertain future prior to his Sirius Satellite Radio announcement, Quivers said she thought it wise to "start developing something now that maybe I can go to in the future."

"Robin's got a high-degree of visibility from this show," said Stern. "The first show, everyone will check out because everyone will be curious to see what Robin is like without [me]. That will get her a huge audience and if the show is halfway decent and they put her in a halfway decent time slot, the show will take off."

In comments last week, Sony Pictures Television SVP/Development and Syndicated Programming Melanie Chilek indicated that the show, targeted to a female audience (age group yet to be determined), would try to take on a tone different from the traditional fare currently available on daytime TV.

"She's so much more dimensional than (what comes across) on the radio," Chilek said. "Given the fact that she's realistic, has a down-to-earth attitude and speaks so frankly, there's so much to work with in developing a show for her that would resonate with viewers."

Quivers, who was a U.S. Air Force nurse prior to her radio career, joined Stern in 1981, published her autobiography, Quivers: A Life in 1995, and also co-starred with her employer in his 1997 bio-pic, Private Parts.
