KTLA Adds 11 p.m. Newscast: Temporary or Permanent Move?


Now that "The Arsenio Hall Show" has been canceled, KTLA last month quietly introduced an 11 p.m. newscast -- at least for the time being -- going up against stalwarts KABC, KCBS and KNBC. Tribune seems to be constantly adding new newscasts to its stations but my question is always the same: is it investing in more staffers -- reporters, editors, etc. -- to fill that expanded time? 11 p.m. is hugely competitive and dominated by KABC/7. Most recently, Fox tried an 11 p.m. newscast here in Los Angeles on its KCOP duopoly but canceled it last year, deciding that syndicated fare made more sense there.
