Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

This confuses the heck out of me and I've seen this repeated in every version of this release.

Do these shows air at the same time overtop of each other? Are they both a half-hour long? Do they alternate? Is one Monday to Friday and the other on weekends? What gives? Sheesh!

Both of these shows are 20-40 minutes long, but Uncharted began in October and a new episode is released every two weeks, while History dates back to 1993.

Thanks Jon.

I've now deleted my 2:00 am alarm clock wake up call due to mystery being solved.

I have no idea what running something like this would cost, but "The Other Side of Midnight" with Frank Morano, produced out of 77/WABC NYC and syndicated in at least a half-dozen US markets would be a much better replacement for "The Shift" than what they currently are running. One of the best talk shows I've heard in recent years, covering everything from politics to UFOs, with a host who knows how to conduct a compelling interview. No doubt running something like this would cost more than their current offering. :(

Although not mentioned in the Corus Press Release, for obvious reasons, CHNL-610 Kamloops is also running this replacement programming for The Shift, which CHNL also carried.

Frank Morano too liberal for me. I much prefer Curtis Slewa on weekends. Overall, WABC NY is a go to station often for me.

OMG!
Remember when broadcasters, especially on-air talent, used to get upset when stations used their already-signed talent to do voice tracks for other dayparts so they wouldn't need to hire additional voices for those same time periods?
Owners/Managers got carried away with that idea and now talent worries about A-I.
The more things change the more they stay the same.
