New Cornerstone deal

Wall-based Cornerstone TeleVision has merged with Arizona-based TV production company Good Friends Inc., which produces four Christian television shows at studios in Arizona and Brampton, Canada.

Those studios and programs, including "Quick Study," "Just the Facts" and "The Adventures of Enoch," will now come under the Cornerstone umbrella. Some of the programs previously aired on Cornerstone's Pittsburgh station, WPCB, and in the future they all will.

Ron Hembree, president of Good Friends, previously worked at Cornerstone in the early '80s and left in 1984 to expand Good Friends. He'll move to Pittsburgh to become chief ministry officer for Cornerstone. Oleen Eagle remains CEO.

The doctor is not in

WPXI won't fill the vacancy left by the departure of Dr. Mike Rosen last year. News director Pat Maday said the station plans to hire a fourth meteorologist instead.

The station continues its medical coverage with Gina Redmond often reading health stories during the 5 p.m. news hour, when Rosen used to appear.
