Anchor Frank Buckley (right) is scaling back his hours on KTLA‘s morning newscast and Chris Schauble (far right), most recently an anchor-reporter with KNBC, is taking his place in the early half of the show.
“Starting next Monday, I’ll no longer be anchoring the 5-7am hours of the KTLA Morning News and a new guy will be in the anchor chair,” Buckley announced in a blog post today on KTLA’s website. “I was asked to fill in on the 5 and 6am broadcasts on a temporary basis after the departure of our friend Emmett Miller in October. We thought it would last a month or two. It’s now March.”
Buckley will continue appearing on the newscast between 7 and 10 a.m.
Schauble has been anchoring KNBC’s weekend evening newscasts and working as a reporter throughout the week.
Schauble is actually a dedicated marathoner and Ironman triathlete. Here’s a video of him competing in the Ironman competition:
