America's Most Wanted is getting cancelled

Like most of the world, I get my news on Facebook.

So I was saddened (a little maybe) to see a friend, former colleague and former America’s Most Wanted producer post as her status this morning:

RIP AMW….life just got a little easier for the bad guys.

That’s right, Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly on Monday announced the crime-fighting staple that has been on the air since 1988 and has led to the capture of more than 1,000 of, well, America’s Most Wanted criminals hasn’t been profitable in some time and will get the axe.

The show aired on Saturday nights and will remain in that slot, it seems, for the time being with reruns. There may also be a series of four quarterly AMW specials, but it won’t be the same as the weekly series.

Here is a link to a good breakdown of the story:

I know AMW had features of criminals, unsolved crimes and other stories from New Mexico through the years, including one story I was first covering as a college intern in my first stint with The New Mexican featuring the June 7, 2000, disappearance of 7-year-old Robbie Romero.
