  1. KSWB is essentially KTLA south. Nexstar owned station and News Director Rich Goldner is a former KTLA guy...former EP of the Morning News. Makes sense to be so news heavy.
  2. FTV reporting that FOX40 (Sacramento) anchor Pedro Rivera is heading down to LA to anchor the new KTLA 5pm with Cher Calvin. Not sure if there will be any other anchor changes as Cher also co-anchors the 6pm, 10pm and 11pm with Micah Ohlman. Micah solo anchors at 6:30.
  3. I'm watching from LA, so I might be misinformed. Would appreciate the group helping me out with what NYC did in terms of extended coverage for Ida last night. It seemed as if the market was woefully unprepared. I watched WCBS via their website, it appeared they had a streaming 9pm hour on CBSN New York and went for an hour at 11pm. They seemed to be the best of what I saw. Didn't see any extra coverage on WNBC or WABC. WNYW went for about 4min at the top of the 10, then moved on to cover Ida damage in Louisiana. Barely gave PIX a second thought. It appeared social media was the pla

    In Memoriam

    RIP Mr. Asner.
  5. Re: I wonder if WCBS will add a 4pm too? I present to you, News 2 at 4. I doubt they will do a re-boot.
  6. Huge KTLA stan here, but that will be a tough timeslot to differentiate themselves in. I know its not about ratings anymore, but dollars. My assumption is that recently acquired Sandra Mitchell will have a presence. You have Pat Harvey on 2, Chuck and Colleen on 4, Marc Brown on 7, hell even Christine Devine on 11 all at 5pm. Going to be tough to get any recongition without a strong LA name. Just my 2 cents.
  7. Something similar happened to another newsie back in December... https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/12/10/news-director-has-all-of-his-belongings-stolen
  8. KTLA leads/dominates in the morning. Their morning news block goes from 4am-2pm. ABC7 leads afternoons, followed by NBC4/KTLA. CBS2 is a non factor, sadly. Led by market vet Pat Harvey and sports legend Jim Hill. Just going off of memory, I think KVEA (Telemundo) has overtaken KMEX (Univision) in terms of ratings for spanish language. KVEA recently lost main female Ana Patricia Candiani. She had been with the network for quite sometime, but transitioned back to local within the past decade. She was a welcomed pillar of stability. I live in Southern California and was raised here.
  9. Also- just noticed former NBC Bay Area weekend co-anchor Anoushah Rasta is now reporting for NBCLA. Nice pickup for KNBC and Anousha gets to stay in CA and the NBCUniversal family. Looks like she will be reporting for the 7pm. Main nightside (11pm) reporter Hetty Chang posted on Twitter that she is back on nightside after helping to launch the new 7pm. Hetty was the A block live shot reporter for the first few weeks of KNBCs 7pm launch.
  10. Knew his days were numbered when Melissa Magee joined. No need for 2 meterologists during the afternoon/evening newscasts in Los Angeles.
  11. She did. She was live with the team at Knott's Berry Farm.
  12. Some good promos on the KTLA Creative Services Twitter account. Really captures how KTLA is focused on the community and how strong their various news teams are.
  13. Shades of the necn look, which is quite impressive in and of itself.
  14. Yes, we still have the BIG 3: CNN, MSNBC and FOX News Channel, but I think it's important to recongize that streaming news is starting to become a player as well. With that being said, just wanted to see what everyone uses for their streaming media service. I am a big fan of ABC News Live. They have multiple morning updates and their ABC News Live Prime is pretty good as well. CBSN used to be my go to for breaking news, but it seems (IMO) that CBS has de-emphasized its focus there. I still will watch here and there, but their weekend coverage is abysmal. I think Newsy does well also. What does
  15. I know this thread is about WXIAs graphics, but indulge me for a bit. 11Alive is a legacy brand, I get it...but come on, its 2021! The Alive branding went out in the late 80s! Off the top of my head, KOCO in OKC and WPTA in Fort Wayne used the Alive branding in the 80s. Is it time to ditch the 11Alive branding? I have family in Atlanta. Of course, they are deeply dedicated to WSB, but I never hear them refer to WXIA as "11Alive." Always channel 11 or NBC.
