LA TV Stations Update

Fox 11/13 has hired a new news director.  Kingsley Smith comes from WTXF/Philadelphia.  She starts her new gig in La La Land on June 20th.

New face at ABC7 comes from ABC15 in Phoenix.  Rudabeh Shahbazi is a general assignment reporter according to their website.

Friday night was the last broadcast for weather guy Mark Thompson on Fox 11/13.  His contract was not renewed.

MIA:  ABC7's Indra Petersons appears to have exited the station.  This past weekend, Garth Kemp did morning weekend weather duty and Indra is gone from their website.
Correction: Garth Kemp filled-in Saturday morning and Jennifer Robbins did Sunday morning weather.   Thanks WhenenRome!

  1. Jennifer Robbins actually did the Sunday morning weather on ABC7. She's subbed on weekend mornings before... most recently while Danny Romero was on medical leave & Indra switched to weekend nights to cover for him. We'll miss Indra on KABC - we really thought they would have moved her up there.... KTLA would be wise to dump the awkward Vera Jimenez for her. But if she ends up on Fox11, well... I guess we just won't be seeing her.
