    Channel 7 announced it on the 4pm that they're expanding the morning show to 4am starting Monday.

    Sister station WPVI announced earlier that they're also expanding to 4am starting Monday as well.

    I don’t know why. Don’t most people want traffic and weather? Really more traffic and what’s happening locally, right? I watched a half hour last week and it was a joke. Of course it’s gonna be sunny and warm out; let’s have a weather anchor tell us the obvious but not have a traffic reporter. The traffic report consisted of Phillip informing to get on the 405 before or after XYZ street...that was it. I did see a hit from Scott/Air 7, but it wasn’t detailed, just about wherever he was at the moment. Thank goodness for KTLA. I see why they’re doing so well. Detailed traffic and local overnight news. Channel 7 had a full on report about a bridge collapse in Italy. WGAF? How does that impact anyone or the majority of people here? Sorry for my rambling post, I just feel like channel 7 is very weak in the morning. I do love their 6pm show though.

    I agree that KABC's morning news has really slid downhill. KABC used to be a dominant #1 in the mornings. Over the last couple years their ratings have slid and KTLA has gained the #1 position before 7 a.m. The traffic reports are severely lacking and have so since Alysha Del Valle left in 2017.

    Do KABC not have a morning traffic reporter?

    I believe Kimi Evans does traffic (according to her Twitter bio), but it can't be more than a few days a week since she's weekend morning meteorologist.

    It's messy.

    Scott Reiff does traffic from Air 7 HD. There isn't a studio based traffic reporter anymore- like someone referenced, since Alysha del Valle left.

    Makes you wonder if you will see a new anchor team on the 11am news. I'd imagine they get in around 2:45-3am. To work until 12:15/12:30 isn't horrible, but it definitely makes for a long day. I would think the 3pm team or the 4pm team could easily add the 11am to their duties.

    They can't even get the name of their show right. Is it the ABC 7 Morning Show, or Eyewitness News?
