KTTV News director FIRED

Recommended Posts

Curious to see who they find to replace her. Kris Knutsen (Former KTTV ND) was previously Assistant ND at KTLA. I would have figured she knew their winning formula and could have used it to KTTVs advantage. She failed to do so. KTLA has been the 800lb gorilla for several years now. In order for KTTV to compete against KTLA/KABC, they need to bring in a news director that knows the market and they also need to shake up GDLA. There are 121 people hosting each morning and the anchor lineups on that show make zero sense.

According to multiple sources and this FTV post. The LA news director at KTTV (Fox 11 LA) has been stripped of her duties as ND.

According to FTVLive, after the ND Kris Knutsen fired GDLA anchor Steve Edwards after allegations of sexual harassment against him,  KTTV never recovered. From what it looked like KTTV dug itself into a hole it couldn't get out of.
