A Smerconish talk-show pilot?

Phildelphia Inquirer - Why was Michael Smerconish, backed by a camera crew, doing "man-on-the-street" interviews on Friday at Reading Terminal Market?
Isn't he on radio?

Talk is that Smerconish, with backing from TV savvy next-door neighbor Pat Croce, is putting together a talk-show pilot for CNN and has studio time booked this week to shoot the bulk of it.

Smerconish, who hosts mornings on WPHT (1210), is a frequent guest on CNN, as well as NBC. Buttonholed later, Smerconish and Croce were uncharacteristically quiet.

A CNN rep says the network asks for many pilots and generally does not comment on them.

[Editor Note: Wonder why they didn't approach Jeanne Moos about a "man-on-the-street" type show, since her "Making The MOOSt Of It" reports are all based on man-on-the-street interviews?]
