KTLA expands morning news to weekends

Burrous, McDade named co-anchors

Tribune-owned KTLA will expand its weekday Los Angeles morning news show to Saturdays and Sundays beginning April 9.

Chris Burrous and Mary Beth McDade will anchor “KTLA Morning News Weekend,” airing from 5-7 a.m. Saturdays and 6-9 a.m. Sundays.

“Expanding this service to our loyal viewers on the weekends is another part of our commitment to produce more hours of news content per week than any other Los Angeles television station,” said KTLA prexy-g.m. Don Corsini.

Burrous returns to California after most recently co-anchoring “PIX Morning News” for KTLA sister station WPIX New York. McDade has been with KTLA for nearly two years as a reporter and as an anchor of the station’s weekend evening news. She has also worked locally for KCAL/KCBS, KTTV and KABC.

The program expansion comes as “KTLA Morning News” prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary in July.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to expand our news coverage to now include Saturday and Sunday mornings,” KTLA news director Jason Ball noted. “We’re confident that Chris and Mary Beth are uniquely qualified to bring our viewers the most up-to-date topical information and relevant news to start their weekend mornings.”
