CBS Turning off Guiding Light

Sad day for soap fans. Sad day for Springfield.

The classic CBS soap opera Guiding Light has been canceled by CBS. First started in radio, it apparently began on NBC radio in January 1937 and moved to CBS television in 1952.

It apparently will end its run in September, and will be replaced with cheaper fare.

We wonder if the show could move to the Internet, or if there are other ways to keep the storyline going online. After all, it began in radio.

CBS. P&G. THINK THINK. Be creative. There is a way to keep the franchise alive.
