KTLA 5 News Thread

Oh yeah, the Romero/Mester mess was darn awful and shouldn't have happened, they should have properly given Lynette a nice farewell even is she was leaving for a competitor, it wouldn't have blown up amongst viewers and Mester would have kept his cool and would probably be there today. Then a few months later the favorable 5 Live gets cancelled... looks like one bad decision after another for KTLA, thank goodness at least one good thing happened in the past several months: the set redesign looks beautiful. 

I’ll admit that I’ve changed my mind on that a bit; I know I said that Mester should’ve been more professional, but it was apparent that Pete Saiers didn’t exactly endear himself to the staff by giving Lynette Romero such a terse dismissal. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was only one of many missteps that he made.

 strategy especially for the Fall going up against CFB and NFL. Doubt they expect to be super competitive in this slot but hard to see how news is cost effective over whatever programming they were showing.

It will be a palate cleanser/transition from the late afternoon NFL games to Sunday Night Football during the fall. Viewers will finish their games on CBS/FOX, take a quick peek at KTLA for quick local headlines/weather for the week then off to NBC for SNF.

KTLA just added a Sunday evening 4pm news.

I don’t think too many people will be watching that because most people just want to relax on Sundays. Even though 5 is not all-news but it feels like it now.

One of the reasons they are doing it because the CW unexpected unannounced expanded to 7pm on Sundays.
