  1. Also, after the premiere of "King Charles" on the 29th of this month, that will leave Pamela Brown as the final of the new shows that is yet to debut on CNN. As far as I can tell, no premiere date has been set yet.
  2. I observed a few days ago that KABC in Los Angeles had a "Live with Kelly and Mark" promo with the new graphics, though I don't foresee a graphics change on its news broadcasts anytime soon.
  3. I was thinking about the status of this program myself over the weekend. It was always set to premiere this fall, but it did feel as if has been taking longer than usual to debut, however. My guess is that it any delay may have had something to do at least in part due to the change of CEOs at WarnerMedia.
  4. Typically, KABC is a stable station in many ways, that include making only small changes in its on-air presentation over many years.
  5. Yeah, Dani Ruberti's first day on air at KCBS/KCAL was last Tuesday. And, Evelyn Taft now does the weather at 4pm, 5pm and 9pm weekdays indeed. Ruberti joins Darren Haynes (KCBS/KCAL sports anchor) and Chauncy Glover (KCBS/KCAL weeknight co-anchor) as big hires for the duopoly in recent weeks. The duopoly has been more aggressive over the past year or so to strengthen itself in the Los Angeles market.
  6. The overhead tracking camera shots are reminiscent of what I have seen on NBC Bay Area's newscasts.
  7. Possible glimpse of a portion of NBC LA's upcoming new set, as seen during Mario Solis's sportscast (he stood in front of a chroma key) during their 11pm show tonight? I guess time will tell.
  8. For the past few days, I have noticed that NBC LA's newscasts have originated from the newsroom. And, confirmed in a post on X by anchor Lynette Romero, a new set is indeed under construction right now...
  9. Has CNN decided to not use Laura Coates as anchor of the 11pm EST hour of "CNN Tonight?" Just a few months ago, she was named host of the second hour, but I don't see her anchoring in that time slot regularly.
  10. Some screenshots of the new KTLA 4pm weekday newscast that just debuted today. Much like how the 5pm broadcast used to originate on the side of the studio back on the old set in its first several months, the 4pm show does here in the new studio, as well.
  11. Indeed, it is plausible that KTLA is temporarily installing Pedro as co-anchor on weekend mornings, who, again, in my opinion, is a better fit than Kolk in that position, until someone permanent that KTLA has likely hired joins the station around June of this year.
  12. Well-deserved for Sam! Directly after the re-airing of her "My Life Story" package on the 5pm broadcast today, it was announced by Sandra Mitchell that Pedro Rivera will be Sam's co-anchor on the upcoming 4pm newscasts.
  13. I am not sure what the ratings have been for "Korano" on KTLA at 4pm weekdays, but I suspect that they are lackluster. Although it is unoriginal to have yet another hour of a station news broadcast, in an effort to have a stronger lead-in to the station's late afternoon and evening programming, this move to have a 4pm newscast may be related to it in many ways. I guess we may never know, unless station management were to be interviewed though.
  14. https://www.si.com/media/2023/02/10/charles-barkley-courted-cnn-primetime-news-show-report On its face, it may seem outlandish for CNN to use Charles Barkley in its weekday primetime lineup, but I feel that he has a strong ability (even over Gayle King) to be a ratings draw long term for the network, though.
  15. Yes, very true. I must have misread, because I thought that I had heard originally weeks ago that Deanno was only going to be on the 11am show.
