CLEVELAND (WJW) — In order to be as transparent as possible, FOX 8 is no longer airing Dr. Mehmet Oz’s show due to the celebrity heart surgeon’s announcement he plans to run for an open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania.

As our signal bleeds a little bit into Pennsylvania, we have to replace “The Dr. Oz Show” on our air effective Thursday. 

Reruns of New Day Cleveland are set to air at 11 a.m. until a new show can replace it in mid January. 

Oz, who is a longtime resident of New Jersey but was born in Cleveland, said Tuesday he plans to run as a Republican.
