  1. Agree with FiveNews. KTLA dominates in the morning and over the years has expanded its newscast to run 10 hours (4am-2pm). KTLA against KTTV and KCAL at 10p.m. is also #1. KTTV is a former shell of itself "ratings wise" and was much stronger and actually beat KTLA in the mornings and 10pm. slot in the early 2000s. KABC in the afternoons/evenings/11pm has continued to lead for many many years. Once in a while KNBC will pull out a win in one of those slots but they are generally always a competitive #2. KCBS trails badly in mornings/afternoons/evenings where they fall even behind KTLA and KTTV
  2. I already see that Sandra Mitchell is filling in as anchor for the 10 pm news. Nice to see her behind the desk again.
  3. KTLA News Director Jason Ball announced that he is resigning from KTLA. He is believed to be staying through the February sweeps.
  4. Out of curiosity, what is the viewership numbers for Spectrum News 1 LA? Its not covered by Nielsen and have not seen any tangible numbers released by Spectrum comparing viewership numbers. Spectrum is only in about 1.25 million homes in the LA market so it would be a very tall order to be getting higher viewership numbers than NewsNation that is available to 75 million households. This means that 10% of spectrum users are turning into Spectrum News which is not happening.
  5. Define ratings disaster? What was 2 1/2 Men getting rating wise compared to this? Since this is a local program, all advertising revenue goes to the station and is probably cheap to produce so it doesn't need nearly as good ratings as expensive syndicated programming like 2 1/2 Men
  6. I live in Los Angeles and it shows NewsNation live at 5 - 8 pm and then again at 8 pm -11 pm.
  7. Interesting. I found KTTV coverage poor on Friday. They had no coverage at 10:30 pm. They ran their news special as always on Friday nights. However, they seem to be better on Saturday.
  8. I have not seen it on my television yet, but KTLA's streaming site now lists a KTLA News at 12 (12pm - 1pm) newscast and a KTLA News at 7 (7pm-7:30pm) newscast. There was a note on the 5 Live Facebook page that until further notice the 5 Live streaming only newscasts have been moved from 12pm-1pm and 2pm-3pm to 4pm-6pm for the near future. I'm assuming these new newscasts started Monday, 3/16 and will be temporary to give additional coverage for the Coronavirus.
  9. Just noticed that KTLA is now using the Nexstar layout.
  10. KTLA has been producing podcasts for the past couple years. Right now they have 9 different podcasts- https://ktla.com/category/podcasts/
  11. Schedule change for KTLA. The Mel Robbins Show and Daily Mail TV have switched timeslots. Mel Robbins is now on at 4 PM and Daily Mail TV is on at 3 AM. Huge upgrade slot for Mel Robbins. This huge upgrade in market 2 alone could help Mel Robbins overall national numbers which have been soft even though its expected that she will get a second season.
  12. What I gather from the article is that their back of office/management is probably sloppy compared to how Nexstar runs things. I think KTLA had a lot of autonomy in how management ran the station and probably that was the case at most Tribune stations. Nexstar appears to run a much tighter ship with many corporate policies. My assumption is that KTLA probably has lax policies that Nexstar thinks need to be tightened. KTLA's on-air product isn't the issue as they have solid #1 ratings in almost all of their timeslots. I wouldn't expect a shakeup in talent as its currently stable and is workin
  13. Well...KTLA and WGN both produce 12.5 hours of newscasts per weekday. Looks like WJW produces 11.5 hours, if you do count New Day Cleveland as news, then 12.5 hours. But KTLA produces 8.5/9.5 hours on Sat/Sun, more than WGN and WJW. As of now, KTLA holds the distinction of producing more local news than any other station in the country with 80.5 hours per week.
  14. Yes they are. I thought that they would try to downgrade the timeslot for Jerry.
