KTNV Surprises Staff, Moves Up Debut of News to Compete with KSNV

KTNV general manager Jim Prather has confirmed with TVSpy, that staffers at the Las Vegas ABC affiliate were told yesterday the station was going to start airing a full hour of news at 3:00 p.m beginning Monday.

The station currently airs a half hour of news at 3:30 p.m. Prather told TVSpy the decision to add the half hour was made more than a year ago when they decided then to stop running “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” at 3:00 p.m. But, “When KSNV announced [its] 3pm start next Monday, we moved up our timeline and will start Monday as well.” Prather added, “We had planned to make the transition on 9/16/13.”

A check of TVEyes showed the station started promoting the switch this morning.

The 3:00 pm. newscast debuting Monday and will be anchored by Rikki Cheese and Brian Scofield.

Rikki Cheese Returns to KTNV Anchor Desk

Rikki Cheese has been tapped to anchor the 3:30 p.m. newscast on KTNV, the ABC-affiliate in Las Vegas.

Cheese has been with KTNV since 2003. Three years ago, she left the morning anchor desk and returned to full-time reporting after being arrested for DUI, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

“Rikki’s knowledge of Las Vegas is second to none,” news director Karin Movesian said in a statement. “It was an easy decision to make.”

Cheese will begin as Steve Wolford‘s co-anchor on the 3:30 p.m. newscast on August 27.
