The Soap News: Everything You Want to Know and More

Soap News was an impressive site that offered soap fans everything they want to know, plus more! It covered in depth information about the two NBC soap operas: Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

In 2001, Sherri, the creator and soap news poster of the site posted on her Spoiler Center Page: "08/23/01: I am so very sorry that it has been so long since the site has been updated. My mom passed away on 8/19/01. As soon as things calm down some, I will start updating the site once again. Thank you all for sticking by me in this tough time. Sherri"

Sherri did a fantastic job keeping all her viewers updated on the news and previews of Guiding Light and As the World Turns. The site delved into these two soap with a fine pick comb. Her Spoiler Central Page covered the best know soaps of ABC, CBS, and NBC. Plus, Soap- News.com also had links to other Soap Fan sites. It was such a bummer for me when Soap- News.com disappeared from the web. 

Recently I discovered that the domain was available, so I bought it with the goal of recreating enough of its original content from archived pages  to show just the tip of the effort Sherri put into building this incredible site. But the amount of information turned out to be overwhelming in its amount. So I am showing only parts of four pages below: the home page, and three Guiding Light pages. I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original Soap-News.com website.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PAGE CONTAINS SELECTIVE ARCHIVED CONTENT FROM THE ORIGINAL SITE.

Since the site will not be exactly as you remember it, please be indulgent
Now let's take a nostalgic stroll back to about 2001 and see what's going on at Soap-News.com.

 

 

​Fade in to the home page with its six important links that took visitors into the rest of the site.

Guiding Light

The fictional Midwest town of Springfield provides the backdrop for this continuing rich tale. The Bauer, Spaulding, Lewis, Cooper and Santos families form the backbone of the community as Springfield's residents face life and love amid the greatest of challenges.

+++​

**Guiding Light's Origin

Guiding Light was created by Irna Phillips. It began with a radio broadcast on January 25, 1937. It's first television broadcast was on June 30, 1952 and was 15 minutes long. From that time until August 1956 the cast did the same scripts for radio and television each day. Although Guiding Light was still the number one radio show, it was cancelled due to a declincing audience. On September 9, 1968, Guiding Light expanded to 30 minutes. It expanded to 60 minutes on November 7, 1977. It's original name was The Guiding Light. "The" was dropped from the name in 1977. This makes Guiding Light the longest running show in broadcast history.

When Irna was 19 years old she found out she was pregnant. She wasn't married and the father of the baby wanted nothing to do with Irna. She ended up giving birth to a still born baby. Out of this tragedy she gained comfort in the sermons of Dr. Preston Bradley. The sermons at the non-denominational Chicago church centered around the brotherhood of man. Twenty-seven years later she used this minister's preachings and theme as the basis for The Guiding Light.

The Guiding Light was centered around the Rev. Dr. John Ruthledge, the people who lived near him, and the people who came to him for help. A lamp in his study was always on as a sign to those who need his help. The lamp was known by all as "The Guiding Light." Rev. Ruthledge ran the Little Church of Five Points in Five Points, a Chicago suburb. Rev. Ruthledge was a widower and had one daughter named Mary Ruthledge. A boy named Ned Holden was left in the Rev. Ruthledge's care. He raised him as his son.

Rev. Ruthledge left the Little Church of Five Points to work in Europe and was replaced by Rev. Dr. Richard Gaylord, then Rev. Frank Tuttle, then the Rev. Dr. Paul Keeler.

Before Rev. Ruthledge died he gave his lamp to Ned and asked him to give it to his good friend from the seminary, Rev. Dr. Charles Matthews. Rev. Matthews lived in Selby Flats, a Los Angeles area neighborhood. Rev. Matthews then became the keeper of "The Guiding Light."

Years later the locale of The Guiding Light changed from Selby Flats to the fictional midwestern town of Springfield. This is the central location of the show today. To learn more about the characters and the stories, go to the GL characters page.

First episode date: June 30, 1952
Final episode date: September 18, 2009
