    Why are they starting this new show? If this show is successful, does that mean the end of Access Live?
  2. What will happen to that hour? Since Kathy is leaving in April, NBC should move Hoda to the 9am hour to co-host the show with a new person, and the 10am hour will be what the current 9am hour is.

    I think that they should revamp their anchor team. Today In L.A. - Adrian Arambulo and Daniella Midday Report - Ted Chen & Kathy Vara 4pm - Michael Brownlee & Kathy Vara 5pm - Colleen Williams & Robert Kovacik 6pm - Robert Kovacik & Carolyn Johnson, 7-8pm on Cozi TV (New Newscast) 11pm - Colleen Williams & Chuck Henry Today In L.A. Weekend - Mekahlo Medina & Annette Areola Weekend Evening Newscast - Michelle Valles & John Cadiz Klemack

    I don't think Henry will retire, but he should. He is getting old and should let the younger generation of reporters and anchors take over. Maybe, KNBC should reduce Henry's anchor duties like they have been doing with Coleman's weather duties. By doing this, Henry will still be anchoring, but won't be off the air.
  5. So, when will we see an expansion of the weekday 11pm newscast to midnight on ktla?

    Adam Kuperstein works in New York. I think KNBC should promote someone within the station or locally, but not Robert Kovacik. Even though I don't think he should get the position, Kovacik probably will takeover the 5 & 11pm once Henry retires.

    Who will replace Chuck Henry when he retires? He's currently 72. My guess is that the station is planning on promoting Robert Kovacik as the main anchor to replace Chuck Henry. Kovacik is the primary fill in when Henry is on vacation or assignment.
  8. Chuck Henry is 72 at knbc. I guess Paul Moyer would not be the best choice. Why not promote one of their reporters. David Goldstein or a younger reporter.
  9. I agree. The Jeff Michael experiment as the main anchor at the station will not work. He will probably be demoted or let go within a couple of years. I am surprised that they did not try to hire Paul Moyer to bring in some temporary ratings improvements. He has a following with many viewers and that would help in ratings. Moyer supposedly retired from KNBC, but I heard that he was forced out because the station did not want to continue to pay him the multi million dollar contract that he was getting anymore. They previously hired popular anchors from KABC such as Harold Greene, Ann Martin, Laura Diaz, Johnny Mountain, and a bunch of reporters.
  10. Sharon Tay should be anchoring the 8 & 10pm newscast. Why is Jeff Michael doing the 5 & 11pm newscast? KABC & KTTV both did not promote him to be their main co-anchor and that was one of the main reasons why he left both stations, but now, KCBS has promoted him to be their main co-anchor at 5 & 11PM? I wished the station went outside and hired someone new. KCBS will probably go back to being in third place in ratings again behind KNBC and KABC in both the afternoons and at 11pm. There have been so many changes at the station.
  11. Since Comcast bought NBC back in 2010-11, they had several opportunities to get college sports as some of the contracts were up at the time until present day. They didn't get the rights to those conferences since they did not want to spend the kind of money that the other networks were offering. The same was true when the baseball contract was up back in 2011, & NBA contract in 2014. Even the ivy league football conference were up earlier this year and ESPN was able to get a contract to air the games instead of NBCSN. My question is, if they did not want to spend the money on these sporting events at the times when the contracts were up, why would they be willing to spend the money in the future? If they are interested in niche sporting events, why even have a sports network. They can spread the niche sporting events across their other cable networks: CNBC, USA Network, Bravo, Oxygen Network, & etc. Hockey, Nascar, Soccer and Cycling can be on CNBC and USA network, while figure skating, gymnastics, tennis, rugby, and other niche / smaller sporting events can be on Bravo & Oxygen Networks. My point is, if they are not going to invest in more popular sporting events, they don't need the NBCSN channel.
  12. Why does NBC not show more college sports, especially on their sports network? I know they have not spent that much on college sports besides for Notre Dame football for the past couple of decades, but if they want to build their sports network, they need more sports programming. If they can get pro baseball in a couple of years and more college football and college basketball, they should be able to be more competitive in terms of programming. They need to keep pro hockey and pro soccer in addition to their nascar coverage as well in order to have programming that people will want to watch.
  13. I think ktla will stop showing Jerry Springer. Kdoc is now airing the show at 9am.
  14. Why even bother? There's way too much local news in Los Angeles. This is also a cable channel. How many viewers can Spectrum expect to get, a few thousand, if possible? I think the only way this station / network will get more viewers is if other stations dramatically cut back on their news programming, which won't happen any time soon. I think they should convert their sports channels into a mixture of local news and sports. The Lakers and Dodgers networks should provide local news in addition to their sports highlights and interview shows, when the respective teams are not playing. The new channel should be devoted something else instead of just local news.

    Why does the station state that Robert Kovacik is an anchor and reporter? He is just a reporter and fill in anchor.
