FIRST ON THE BLOG: Another new hour is coming to KTLA’s oh-so popular morning newscast. This time though, its on Saturdays.
Starting this upcoming Saturday August 6th, KTLA 5 is adding another hour to its Saturday morning newscast at 9:00am. This new hour will compete against KABC 7 (ABC)’s half-hour Saturday morning newscast at 9:00am so at 9:30am when KABC 7 goes off-air, KTLA 5 will be the ONLY ones on at that time.
This means that the KTLA Morning News on weekends will now be on both days from 6:00-10:00am. The weekend morning newscast is anchored by Chris Burrous and Lynette Romero with 5 LIVE Weather from Meteorologist Liberte Chan. They all also helm the Sunday morning edition as well.
This comes after KTLA 5 expanded the Sunday morning edition last year to include a 9:00am hour as well after both editions were just previously on from 6:00-9:00am. And when I said popular, it is because KTLA 5 dominates in the mornings and continues to do so.
So the news expansion in Los Angeles continues and KTLA 5 is at the forefront of it all.
