    The weekend weather anchors split that 3pm shift. One works like M-W, and the other takes Th-F, or something like that. I believe they do the same thing at 11am, too, and it's a pretty normal thing at many other stations.


    Got it. I don't watch KNBC at those times so I didn't realize they split it which is why I was confused about the statement. I know KTLA does the same for its midday newscasts.

    Annabelle Sedano has been hired as a new 3PM and 5PM anchor:




    I'm confused by their press release. Is there two meteorologists at 3 p.m.? This is what the release says:


    "Weekdays at 3 p.m., Sedano will anchor NBC4 News kicking off the station's afternoon news block alongside Meteorologists Shanna Mendiola and Stephanie Olmo."

    Court never left, that wasn't her goal. The goal was to get off weekends. She has posted that she is more than happy filling in during the weekedays, which she has done since leaving weekends. Afternoons and nightside.


    Thanks for the info. I thought I read somewhere she had left entirely.

    Any updates on KTLA’s new set? 

    When they announced they were going onto a temporary set they said it would be 6 weeks. The end of this week is 6 weeks. If everything ran on schedule, it could debut by next week. However, it seems construction always runs a little behind so I wouldn't be surprised if it was still a few weeks out.

    I think this is a brilliant idea. KCBS isn't going to take a ratings hit – they have nowhere to go but up.


    6am hour

    27 Jun - 1 Jul


    0.0 rating, 1 share


    0.1 rating, 2 share


    0.5 rating, 15 share


    0.2 rating, 7 share


    KCAL (Relative Justice)
    0.0 rating, 1 share


    0.2 rating, 7 share


    Sure, it's only July when morning ratings are pretty soft anyway with school not in session, but May didn't look any better for KCBS.


    Thanks for posting these. I didn't realize how far KABC had fallen. KABC had been especially strong in the 6 a.m. hour . Do you have any numbers for the 7am hour?

    FTVLIVE reporting Sandra Mitchell joins KTLA as a per diem reporter from being laid off after 20 years from KCBS/KCAL.


    I already see that Sandra Mitchell is filling in as anchor for the 10 pm news. Nice to see her behind the desk again.

    A shakeup? I didn't think KTLA was doing THAT bad. Sure it's probably getting beat by KCAL, but last I checked, 5 was beating KTTV in most timeslots.


    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 working. The shakeup will come in the form of management.
