“After 20 years with Fox Television Stations, Kingsley Smith has resigned from employment with the company and will be pursuing other opportunities,” KTTV vice president and general manager Kevin Hale said in a statement.
Smith joined KTTV in 2011. He has also worked as news director for Fox-owned WTXF in Philadelphia and KTVI in St. Louis, which was a Fox O&O at the time he was there. Earlier in his career, he spent 15 years at KDFW in Dallas, where he worked his way up from producer to executive producer to assistant news director.
A station spokesperson tells TVSpy that a search is underway for Smith’s replacement. In the interim period, assistant news director Tom Searson will be acting news director.
KDFW vice president and news director Robin Whitmeyer said in a statement, “Jenny is a valuable addition to our station. Her experience in breaking news, enterprise reporting, specifically investigative consumer stories, will provide further versatility to our team and enhance our news product.”
Beginning October 21, Anchondo will anchor “Good Day Saturday,” “Good Day Sunday,” and will also report for the weekday morning show “Good Day.”

FOX Television Stations has announced “TMZ Live,” a one hour show that takes viewers inside the TMZ newsroom, will now air on all of its FOX stations.
FOX has been slowly adding the show to its station group since March 2012. After a test run in the Los Angeles market on KTTV, it soon expanded into Phoenix (KSAZ), Boston (WFXT) Chicago (WFLD), Dallas (KDFW), Detroit (WJBK) and Minneapolis (KMSP). Beginning next Fall, FOX will air the show on its remaining stations including New York (WNYW), Philadelphia (WTXF), Washington, D.C (WTTG), Atlanta (WAGA), Houston (KRIV), Tampa (WTVT) and Orlando (WOFL).
“The distribution roll-out of “TMZ Live” is as unconventional and unique as the show itself,” said Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “This slow approach has translated into a strong and loyal daily audience, time period increases and younger demos. It’s also created a demand in the markets where the series does not yet air.” Read more
