KGO Expands Weekend Newscasts To a Full Hour

KGO, the ABC owned-and-operated station in San Francisco, is expanding their 11 p.m. weekend newscast to a full hour beginning this weekend.

KGO’s Alan Wang (pictured), the current 11 p.m. anchor, will remain at the helm for the new 60-minute broadcasts. He will be joined by meteorologist Leigh Glaser and sports anchor Mike Shumann.

KGO will be the first San Francisco station to offer an hour of news in the 11 p.m. timeslot. KTVU, the Fox affiliate, does not have an 11 p.m. newscast; CBS affiliate KPIX and NBC affiliate KNTV have a 35-minute and 30-minute newscast, respectively.

This is the second expansion of news programming for KGO this year. After Oprah Winfrey signed off from daytime television in May, the station replaced her talk show with a 4 p.m. newscast.
