History

Channel 4 in Los Angeles was the next to last VHF station (among seven) to sign-on in the area, beating the then-KECA-TV (Channel 7; now KABC-TV) on the air by exactly eight months. The station then known as KNBH (for "NBC Hollywood" -- the KNBC call letters were already in use in San Francisco radio) went on the air for the first time on January 16, 1949. It was the last of five stations built from the ground up by NBC after its preceding sister stations in New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago and Cleveland -- and the last of four original NBC O&O's under continuous ownership after the Cleveland affiliate was sold. Channel 4 originally broadcast from the NBC Radio City Studios at Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, and became the permanent Los Angeles outlet for NBC television, after taking over for KFI-TV (Channel 9; now KCAL-TV), who had originally signed-on in August 1948. The station changed its call letters from KNBH to KRCA in February 1954, around the same time its New York City sister station, WNBT (Channel 4; now WNBC) changed theirs to WRCA-TV. The “RCA” in the calls stood for Radio Corporation of America, NBC’s original owner. Again following suit with what happened with New York City’s Channel 4, Los Angeles’ Channel 4 changed its call letters to the present-day KNBC in 1960. The KRCA call letters were resurrected years later on another local outlet, the Spanish-language independent station on the Riverside-licensed Channel 62. KABC-TV (Channel 7, branded as ABC7) is the American Broadcasting Company owned television station (through The Walt Disney Company) in the Greater Los Angeles area market, and is the most-watched television station in Southern California. ...

In 1962, After 13 years broadcasting from Hollywood, KNBC relocated to the network’s color broadcast studio facility in suburban Burbank. NBC Color City, as it was then known, was already in operation since March 1955, and was at least four to five times larger than Radio City, and could easily accommodate KNBC’s locally-produced studio programming. NBC Radio’s West Coast operations eventually followed KNBC to Burbank not too long after. NBC Studios are the two studio facilities belonging to the National Broadcasting Company, with one of them being located at Rockefeller Center in New York City, and the other located in Burbank, California, just outside of Los Angeles. ...


For over the last 30 years, it has battled fellow network stations, KNXT/KCBS-TV (Channel 2) and KABC, for the top position for the #1 news operation in greater Los Angeles, although KCBS hasn’t been more of a factor until 2006. Throughout the late 1980s and in to the early 2000s, KNBC's newscasts were top-ranked in the region, beating out every other station for news ratings and coinciding with the network's ratings. Currently, KNBC’s 11pm newscast sits in third place (mostly thanks to NBC’s less than stellar primetime ratings, as well as shake-ups in the station’s higher management). However, most of the station’s other newscasts, including its popular morning news program, Today in LA (the area’s first local morning newscast, starting up in 1986), rates at or near the top of the local news ratings.

Among the branding names that KNBC has used over the years, they include “The Ford News” (1950-54; sponsored by the Ford Motor Company), “Jack Latham & The News” (1954-60), The “5th”, “6th”, and “11th” Hour Reports (1960-71; those titles were also used at WNBC during this time period), “KNBC News Service” (1971-75), “NewsCenter 4” (1975-81), “News 4 L.A.” (1981-85), and the present “Channel 4 News” (1985 to present). “Ford” redirects here. ...


Although the news was branded as “Channel 4 News”, the station adopted “NBC 4” (or the long-form “NBC 4 Los Angeles”) as the station’s branding name in 1995. It was among the first stations in the market to use the network-channel number (or region) as its identification (Fox’s KTTV was the first, in 1986-87). KTTV, channel 11, is an owned-and-operated television station of the News Corporation-owned Fox Broadcasting Company, located in Los Angeles, California. ...


KNBC has been long active in community events, including airing the annual Kingdom Day Parade (honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday) in South Los Angeles, sponsoring an annual two-day Health & Fitness Expo Fair at the Los Angeles Convention Center every summer, and since 2001 has been the exclusive local English-language carrier of the annual Los Angeles Marathon (sister station KVEA carries a Spanish-language version of the event).

Leaving "Beautiful Downtown Burbank"

On October 11, 2007, NBC Universal announced that it will set its Burbank studios and construct a new all-digital facility near the Universal Studios backlot, in an effort to merge all NBC Universal operations into one area. As a result, KNBC and its sister stations KVEA and KWHY, along with NBC News's Los Angeles bureau will move to a new digital facility adjacent to the Universal City Metro Red Line Station. The Tonight Show and other studio productions will move to the studios backlot. NBC's Los Angeles operations have been in Burbank since 1955, when they left Hollywood.

In 1987 during a KNBC afternoon newscast, a gun-wielding mental patient gained access to NBC Studios, and took Horowitz hostage live on the air. With the gun pressed on his side, Horowitz calmly read the gunman's statements on camera. The unidentified man was caught with a toy gun, and was arrested by local police. It led Horowitz to start a successful campaign to ban "look-alike" toy guns in several states, including California and New York. [1]


Current KNBC personalities include Paul Moyer, Colleen Williams, Chuck Henry, chief weathercaster Fritz Coleman, and sports director Fred Roggin. Moyer, Williams, Coleman, and Roggin make up the station's 5 and 11PM Monday-Friday news team, while Henry co-anchors the 6 PM weeknight newscasts with Ana Garcia.

As with its East coast sister WNBC, KNBC has a very stable news team. There have been some changes among the reporting staff in recent years, but the anchors have remained unchanged. Williams, Roggin, and Coleman have been at KNBC for at least 20 years each, while Moyer arrived from rival KABC-TV in July 1992, replacing veteran anchor John Beard who anchored at KNBC for many years. Moyer started his Los Angeles broadcasting career at KNBC in 1972, as an anchor and reporter, before beginning a 13-year stint at KABC in 1979. Much like Moyer, Chuck Henry was also a mainstay at KABC, before making the move to Burbank in January 1994. He currently produces (through his self-titled production company) the travelouge series, Travel Cafe, which airs weekends on KNBC. KABC-TV (Channel 7, branded as ABC7) is the American Broadcasting Company owned television station (through The Walt Disney Company) in the Greater Los Angeles area market, and is the most-watched television station in Southern California. ... John Beard is an Emmy-award winning American news anchor for the Fox 11 station based in Los Angeles, California, where he began reporting in 1993. ...


The most controversial departure was that of Christopher Nance, a popular longtime weathercaster on the weekend and, later, Today in L.A. newscasts. In 2002 Nance was fired from KNBC after years of what some say was "menacing and profane off-air behavior" contrary to Nance's on-air flamboyant and cheerful nature, a popular staple at KNBC, a reason for Today in L.A.'s high ratings. Shortly after he was fired, Los Angeles Magazine published an article on Nance and KNBC, further detailing his behavioral problems, including allegations that he had been involved with an intern at KNBC, and had been in altercations with many staff members. He alleges that the station fired him because of his religious beliefs. He is a Christian, and was known to have read the Bible during breaks, according to his website and the article on Los Angeles Magazine. In 2004 Nance sued his former employer citing he was fired due to racial and religious discrimination.
