Default Headline Chasers

In 1985 a game show named Headline Chasers made it's debut and tested two teams of couples knowledge of news stories and events happening in the world. Wink Martindale who also hosted Headline Chasers actually got the idea for Headline Chasers while reading the newspaper while enjoying a lovely breakfast with his wife Sandy and being obsessed with what was happening in the world Headline Chasers was born. Wink Martindale's own production company Wink Martindale Productions produced Headline Chasers as the first ever game show produced by Wink Martindale Productions. With people interested in the news of today it would sure be nice if a revival of Headline Chasers was made for CNN or MSNBC or Newsmax TV with Bill O'Reilly as host. Wouldn't that be cool?

Hi, Bestie! I never saw that show. Do they ever have reruns of it?

I saw it on a station in Johnstown, PA. None of the Pittsburgh stations ever carried it.

WWAY in Wilmington, NC aired it at 12:00 PM when it started in Sep. 1985, but dropped it in Jan. 1986.

WTVD in Raleigh, NC aired it at 5:00 PM to begin with, but moved it to 10:30 AM in Jan. 1986.

The only time an episode reran after it first aired in the 1985-86 season was when the Game Show Network aired one episode as a special "Game of the Week" sometime in 2000.
