Chicago, IL-January 30, 2008--NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution's "The Steve Wilkos Show" has been renewed in more than 85% of the U.S. for its second season in national syndication, it was announced today by Barry Wallach, President, NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution.

"Wilkos" has been renewed by a number of leading station groups including Tribune, Sinclair, Fox, LIN, Sunbeam and more. The show has been renewed on top Tribune stations including WPIX-TV New York, KTLA-TV Los Angeles, WGN-TV Chicago and WPHL-TV Philadelphia. Sinclair stations include WTTA-TV Tampa, WNUV-TV Baltimore, WTTE-TV Columbus and WLFL-TV Raleigh. Fox owned stations include WFTC-TV Minneapolis and KUTP-TV Phoenix.
