VIDEO: Hooters Girls Join KTLA Morning Newscast

KTLA invited a couple of Hooters girls to be a part of the station’s morning newscast on Wednesday.

Meteorologist Henry DiCarlo introduced the girls, who are set to compete in a local swimsuit competition, during the 6 o’clock hour, as anchors Megan Henderson and Chris Schauble snacked on wings from the restaurant. Later in the show, the girls stripped down to their swimsuits and joined weathercaster Mark Kriski as he promoted their competition.

This isn’t the first time KTLA has invited scantily clad women onto its morning show. During February sweeps, the station had lingerie models on to accompany DiCarlo for a weather update.

LA Weathercasters Go Head-to-Head in Charity Battle

Weathercasters, start your engines!

Mark Kriski of KTLA and  Dallas Raines of KABC — both veteran weathercasters in the Los Angeles market — will go head-to-head Saturday night in a stock car race held at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA.

Raines and Kriski are two of the competitors in the Toyota Kids Against Cancer Celebrity Benefit stock car race, which will be held tomorrow night. They will drive identical S-2 NASCAR stock cars and compete against other celebrities, including Frankie Muniz and Kim Coates.

“People always say that it’s an easy job to be a weatherman in Los Angeles, so we decided to give two of the best ones a little driving test at the Speedway,” track VP-GM Bob DeFazio said. “They’re both as much fun in person as they are on screen, and both even more intense about driving in this event and doing some good in the fight against pediatric cancer.”

Using the Infamous Shake Weight, KTLA Morning Team Proves It’s Never Too Early for Sex Jokes

In an apparent effort to rid the world of future Shake Weight jokes by cramming as many as possible into its morning newscast, KTLA ran two segments about the new-ish fitness device last Friday, reveling in the suggestive motion that the motorized barbell makes.

With the 6 o’clock hour’s second segment, the crew’s jokes became more and more bawdy. At one point, weathercaster Mark Kriski asked reporter Allie MacKay, “I’ve got a small, white one, does that make a difference?” Without missing a beat, MacKay shot back, “I don’t think it’s the size of it, it’s actually the technique” (video above).

While Chris Schauble, who recently joined KTLA, enthusiastically used a Shake Weight at the anchor desk, his co-anchor Megan Henderson couldn’t be coaxed into making the device’s up-and-down motion, predicting (correctly) that the segments would quickly land them on YouTube.

KTLA’s Mark Kriski Set to Undergo Surgery

Mark Kriski is known for injecting humor into KTLA‘s morning newscasts but the veteran weathercaster is currently dealing with something that is deadly serious.

Today Kriski is set to undergo the final round of surgery in his long battle with viral pneumonia.

“After everything that’s been done, the doctors just need to go back in and take a look, remove any dead tissue, and so on,” explained to TVSpy sister site FishbowlLA recently. “They’re estimating that I will be in the hospital for two days, and then back home for another ten days to two weeks of recovery.”

Kriski was on-air on Monday but took yesterday off to prepare for the operation. Read more at FishbowlLA
