KRCR, Bonten Media’s ABC affiliate in Redding-Chico, Calif., has expanded its morning newscast.

“Over the past several years it has become clear, as more viewers wake up to KRCR Daybreak than ever before, that there is a great demand for more local news from our outstanding team,” news director Jennifer Scarborough said in a statement.

The newscast, anchored by Kelli Saam and meteorologist Rob Elvington, airs from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. weekdays. The first day of the expanded newscast was Monday.
