Lucey will be in studio with Uygur for the full hour to talk about politics, current events and her split from the Los Angeles Fox O&O, a spokesperson for Current TV tells TVSpy.
Although Lucey was the entertainment reporter for “Good Day LA,” a source at Current says the co-hosting gig could be the start of a relationship between Lucey and the network, which continues to build out its progressive political programming. Lucey has described herself as a “liberal Christian.” Read more
Apparently lost in a pun, KTTV anchor Christine Devine referred to Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick as “Jonathan Swift” during a recent newscast, while setting up a Stanley Cup update (video above).

“Our dear friend and colleague led us to top ratings for a number of years,” KTTV anchor Jean Martirez said during the Fox O&O’s morning newscast on Thursday, announcing Rios’s retirement. “Jose hired all of us. I would walk on red-hot coals for this man.”
Rios spent two decades as news director at KTTV. Last April, the Fox station group announced that he had been appointed to vice president of digital news applications, overseeing app development for all of the company’s stations. Read more
“I’ve said some dumb, dumb things and I just want to say, I think that’s what’s made this show what it is–that you and I have not always agreed,” Reynolds, who is becoming a freelance employee with KTTV, told Lucey as they both cried (video above). The LA Times piece Reynolds refers to is here.

Even though the Los Angeles Kings are in the NHL western conference finals, the team has apparently failed to win the full attention of the city’s news stations. After KNBC mistook the Sacramento Kings of the NBA for the LA Kings last week, Fox O&O KTTV is stuck doing damage control over a segment that Yahoo! Sports described as “the worst highlight package of [the] NHL playoffs.”
KTTV sports anchor Liz Habib tried to will her way through an update on the Kings’ Game 3 victory last week that seemed doomed from the beginning (video above).
In addition to referring to the puck as “the ball,” Habib flubbed the names of two key Kings players–Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty. And then, as observant internet commenters have pointed out, KTTV’s graphics department used the old NHL logo. Read more
