KNBC Expands Weekend Newscasts

KNBC in Los Angeles is expanding its weekend evening newscasts.

The NBC-owned station is launching a 30-minute newscast at 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, as well as expanding the Sunday 11 p.m. newscast to a full hour.

“The expansion of our newscasts give us a chance to tell more stories and cover events that happen on weekends,” KNBC vice president of news Todd Mokhtari said in a statement.  “The added time slots give our viewers more options for getting breaking news, local information and weather all weekend long.”

Robert Kovacik and Kathy Vara, who currently anchor the station’s 6 and 11 p.m. weekend newscasts, will also anchor the 5 p.m. broadcast.
