KTLA Hires Courtney Friel, Jillian Barberie

It’s not every day that a TV news director can cram five new hires into a single tweet. But that was the case Monday with KTLA’s Jason Ball:

The two biggest names are of course the KTTV FOX 11 tandem of Courtney Friel and Jillian Barberie.

Courtney Friel Says Goodbye to KTTV

As entertainment reporter Courtney Friel bids farewell today to FOX 11 after six years with the station and sister network, she says her first priority will be some quiet time this weekend at home with husband Carter Evans. Her CBS News spouse is now also infamously known as the journalist who got caught in some very intense and scary Big Bear/Christopher Dorner crossfire.

“I knew when I was moving out to Los Angeles that it was always the plan for me to just finish out the last year of my FNC contract at KTTV,” she tells FishbowlLA via email. “My husband and I really wanted to move back to LA to raise our family, and Roger Ailes was so gracious to allow this to happen.”

“It’s been such an honor to work with KTTV and FOX News Channel for the past six years and I really appreciate all the love, support, and guidance I received,” she adds. “I have a few projects I’ll be working on and look forward to exploring more entertainment opportunities both within television news and other alternative entertainment programming platforms.”

KCAL Reporter Captures Chris Dorner Gunfire

KCAL 9 reporter Carter Evans found himself in the middle of gunfire Tuesday afternoon while reporting on the Christopher Dorner standoff in Big Bear.

Officers reportedly spotted Dorner and above is the chilling exchange of bullets, along with Carter (who luckily wasn’t injured) getting chewed out by an LAPD officer.

Just another Tuesday in Southern California.
