Apparently, AMC will end on September 2011 and OLTL will go off the air on January 2012, while “General Hospital” will still remain.

“While we are excited about our new shows and the shift in our business, I can’t help but recognize how bittersweet the change is,” ABC Daytime president Brian Frons was quoted as saying.

“We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days.” Frons added.

Meanwhile, among the new reality TV shows that ABC will introduce include food show “The Chew” which will be hosted by Mario Batali and will premiere this coming September.

On January 2012, a health and lifestyle transformation show which has a tentative title of “The Revolution” will be aired, which will be hosted by a team of experts and rotating guest contributors who will be on rotating appearance.

“All My Children” (AMC) has been running for 41 years since 1970, while “One Life to Live” (OLTL) started on July 1968, with both shows created by Agnes Nixon.
