LEE & HAYLEY SHOW TO AIR ON ABC36 IN 2020
Big news today from the central Kentucky broadcast industry as Lee Cruse and Hayley Harmon announced plans to return to television in early 2020. The long-time pair will host “The Lee and Hayley Show” which will air weekdays on WTVQ ABC 36. The show will debut on Monday, February 17.   
 
“The Lee and Hayley Show” will reunite Kentucky’s two most popular and well-known TV personalities who previously hosted “Live with Lee & Hayley” on Lexington’s NBC affiliate.  
 
After taking some time off this past summer, Cruse and Harmon decided to create their own production company, Lee & Hayley, LLC, thus giving them creative freedom for this and potential future shows. 
 
“Lee and I are thrilled to be staying in the Bluegrass with our new program,” said co-host Harmon. “We’re going to be back on the air doing what we love for the fans we adore.” 
 
The show promises to deliver on high caliber viewing satisfaction with celebrity and musical guests, touring comedians, current event features, comic sketches, and human-interest stories. Viewers will be reunited with Lee and Hayley’s high-energy delivery, captivating on-screen chemistry, and authentic southern charm.    
 
Chris Aldridge, general manager at WTVQ, was elated to be able to facilitate a new home for the small screen power-duo. “We’re delighted to welcome Lee and Hayley into the ABC 36 family,” he said. “Bringing their tremendous talent and immense viewer-appeal to our station is going to be a game-changer in this market,” he added. 
 
“Hayley and I felt it was imperative to partner with a talented team of professionals we trust and have our best interest at heart,” Cruse said. “Additionally, we are grateful to Chris, his ownership, and his team for making this opportunity possible.” 
 
In addition to co-hosting “The Lee and Hayley Show,” Cruse will bring his distinctive brand of reporting and storytelling to various ABC36 newscasts and special features.
