The Daily Buzz is a nationally syndicated breakfast television news and infotainment program. The show is produced by Fisher Communications and is owned and distributed by ACME Communications; it is broadcast every weekday morning (3 hours a day) from studios at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. The show caters to a younger-skewing audience demographic and has a more informal atmosphere in comparison to its morning counterparts.

Premiering on 10 stations on September 16, 2002, The Daily Buzz is currently carried on stations in 165 U.S. television markets (encompassing 60% of American television homes), mostly on affiliates of MyNetworkTV, The CW, Fox, or The CW Plus programming service.[1] Some stations that carry the show only broadcast a portion of the program (usually these stations air a morning newscast produced by another station in the market, preempting the first hour of the national show).


Production history

For the first two years, The Daily Buzz broadcast out of ACME-owned WBDT in Dayton, Ohio. The show moved to the Orlando area in August 2004, initially broadcasting from WKCF's Lake Mary studios. In early 2007, WKCF moved to WESH's studios in Winter Park after WESH owners Hearst-Argyle Television acquired WKCF to create a duopoly in the Orlando market.

In mid-April 2007, the show's previous studios were acquired by Trinity Broadcasting Network and Good Life Broadcasting for new studios for their respective stations, WTGL-TV (now WHLV-TV) and WLCB-TV (the present-day WTGL).[2] At this time, the show changed Orlando affiliates, from WKCF to WRDQ, and also moved to a temporary home inside the Disney-MGM Studios. The Daily Buzz spent six weeks at the Disney facilities until new, permanent studios were completed on the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park in June 2007.[3] The Daily Buzz's first show at Full Sail aired on Tuesday, June 19, 2007, and they continue to broadcast there to this day.

In 2010, Fisher Communications joined ACME Communications on a licensing and consulting agreement for The Daily Buzz. The agreement allowed Fisher to take over production of the show on ACME's behalf (they would move production to HD in 2010), and gives Fisher the option of purchasing the show from ACME. The agreement also allowed Fisher to create Buzz Brands, a service that offers multimedia content, both local in nature and from The Daily Buzz, to local affiliates for multiple media platforms (including TV, online, and even radio).[1][4] Two Buzz Brands platforms have launched so far: "GalTime," a female-oriented platform, had a soft launch in October 2010 before expanding nationwide in early 2011[5][6]; "HeadDrama," which is geared toward advice on mental health concerns, began in May 2011.[7]
