CBS Reshapes KCAL With Big L.A. Local News Revamp


For a generation of Southland TV viewers, tuning to Nexstar Media Group-owned KTLA-5 in Los Angeles at 4am has brought the first of a series of live and local newscasts, stretching into the noon hour on the former Tribune flagship.

Their primary competitor is Good Day L.A. — the signature wake-up show on FOX-owned KTTV-11. It concludes at 10am, when Rachael Ray begins. The morning newscasts on the ABC and NBC O&Os each conclude at 7am when Good Morning America and TODAY begin. As such, KTLA has been alone in airing local news across the entire morning in Los Angeles.

That’s poised to change, thanks to a bold move from CBS News & Stations.
