Hard Copy is an American tabloid news television show that ran in syndication from 1989 to 1999. Hard Copy was aggressive in its use of questionable material on television, including gratuitous violence. The original hosts of Hard Copy were Alan Frio and Terry Murphy. Frio left the series after the 1990-91 season and was succeeded by Barry Nolan in the fall of 1991. Nolan and Murphy would stay until after the 1997-98 season, when they both departed. In the show's final season, Kyle Kraska took over as the sole host. Hard Copy was produced and distributed by Paramount Domestic Television and, for much of its time on air, was often aired with its sister show, the Hollywood news program Entertainment Tonight as part of an hour-long programming block sold to local stations.
