With Victor’s (Eric Braden) trial about to begin, expect plenty of coverage on the Genoa City news. And the soap has brought in two bona fide media women to handle the assignment.
Entertainment Tonight correspondent Nischelle Turner, who happens to be a real-life fan of the soap, turns up as a news anchor on Friday, February 8.
“I’m giving the run-down on Victor Newman’s trial,” Turner told Soap Opera Digest, noting that she didn’t interact onscreen with any of the show’s cast.
