NBC’s three owned-and-operated stations in California are set to launch their own TV program. Variety reports that KNBC-TV Los Angeles, KNTV-TV San Francisco and KNSD San Diego are readying a live daily lifestyle series, “California Live.”
The program will air at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday across the three stations.
“The show will have some modular segments that will be customized for each market, with an emphasis on restaurants, night life, lifestyle topics, pop culture and entertainment,” Variety notes.
Steve Carlston, president and general manager of KNBC, is quoted in the report saying: ”‘California Live’ will reveal the top places to eat, play and relax so viewers can embrace the best California has to offer. The show will introduce viewers to newsmakers, celebrities and people who make our state great.”
Variety adds: “In Los Angeles, ‘California Live’ will replace the second half of KNBC’s 11 a.m. newscast, which will shift to a half-hour format. The program is lining up a team of experts and regular correspondents. Danielle Nottingham and Jessica Vilchis are on board as hosts.”
The show will premiere Jan. 7.
