Dan Shea and Jim Amoss are scheduled to appear on consecutive airings of WUPL-TV’s The 504 this week, according to the show’s Facebook page.
Shea, the new general manager of The Advocate and former managing editor of the Times-Picayune, will appear Thursday, May 16. Amoss, editor of the Picayune and NOLA Media Group vice president of content, will appear Friday, May 17. The half-hour show airs at 9:00 PM.
According to Gambit’s Kevin Allman, Amoss declined the opportunity to appear on the same show with Shea:
[The 504 host Melanie] Hebert dismissed rumors that the two-night booking was due to the fact the men did not want to appear together on one panel. The Advocate editors were booked first, she told Gambit tonight, while Amoss was invited to come on with the option of joining the Thursday show or making a separate appearance on Friday. “Jim said he would prefer to come on separately,” Hebert said.
