Good Day L.A.
Morning television news and entertainment program in Los Angeles
Good Day L.A. is an American morning television news and entertainment program airing on KTTV (channel 11), a Foxowned-and-operatedtelevision station in Los Angeles, California, owned by the Fox Television Stations subsidiary of Fox Corporation. The program broadcasts each weekday morning from 4a.m. to 10 a.m. Pacific Time. The program features news, traffic, weather, and entertainment segments (including celebrity interviews, which are mainly done in studio, but occasionally via satellite). The program also features weekly segments on finance, tech, wellness, and food.
Good Day L.A. debuted on June 18, At its inception, it was a two-hour newscast utilizing the then-traditional "overnight headlines and traffic/weather" morning news format, originally anchored by Antonio Mora and Susan Lichtman. Mark Thompson moved from the station's 10 p.m. newscast to serve as its weather anchor; Dagny Hultgreen served as the entertainment anchor; and Suzanne Dunn was the traffic reporter, reporting from the station's news helicopter Sky 11 (now SkyFox). A weekend public affairs show with the same name aired during the s.
The format was unsuccessful, and the show had suffered from frequent anchor turnover. Mora left for ABC News and was replaced by Thompson and later Tony McEwing (who has anchored the early morning Fox 11 Morning News since its launch). Hultgreen was replaced by Lonnie Lardner; Dunn was replaced by Will Kohlschreiber.
The show was retooled in March when Steve Edwards was brought in as anchor alongside Jillian Barberie (now Jillian Reynolds) as weather anchor (swapping positions with Thompson, who took over her former post reporting weather on the station's 10 p.m. newscast), and Dorothy Lucey handling the entertainment reports; Rod Bernsen took over the traffic reports from the helicopter, and McEwing reported headlines from the newsroom.
In mid, the show saw its first major lineup change in nearly two decades with the departure of Lucey, whose contract was not renewed in May. Around the same time, Reynolds was offered to work on a freelance basis and began appearing less frequently on the program. Unsatisfied with the demotion, Reynolds chose to leave completely in September of that year. At the same time of Reynolds' departure, frequent guest host Maria Sansone was made a full-time co-host of the program, alongside Edwards. The two were later joined by Araksya Karapetyan who served as a third host/anchor with regular contributions from Lisa Breckenridge, Marla Tellez, and Tony McEwing.
Both Lisa Breckenridge and Maria Sansone were let go from the show in January unannounced. For a short period, the broadcast was hosted by just Edwards and Karapetyan before the latter was moved to the channel's early morning newscast. Liz Habib then joined as the show's new co-anchor. On December 4, , Megan Colarossi joined the show as the new co-anchor alongside Edwards replacing Habib who returned to be a sports anchor. The teaming lasted just one week, as Edwards was let go by KTTV.
Good Day Live
In , Good Day L.A. spun off a nationally syndicated program called Good Day Live, an hour-long version of the local show with the same hosts; the program, which featured the same format as Good Day L.A. (although with more of an emphasis on entertainment news, interviews, and feature stories rather than news headlines), was distributed by Twentieth Television and was originally launched on the Fox Television Stations, the parent of KTTV which operates Fox's owned-and-operated stations. Jillian Barberie was fired from the show and Dorothy Lucey left the syndicated version in , yet both continued to host the L.A.-based version. They were replaced by Arthel Neville and Debbie Matenopoulos. Good Day Live was canceled a year later due to low ratings.
Expansion to three hours
Following the cancelation of Good Day Live, KTTV expanded Good Day L.A. to three hours, running until 10 a.m. local time (becoming the first Fox-owned station, and one of the earliest stations not affiliated with the Big Three networks, to expand their morning newscast into the 9 a.m. hour). Also in , Good Day L.A. added a Sunday edition of the program that was hosted by Robb Weller, Nischelle Turner and Elizabeth Espinosa (in July , the Good Day L.A. branding was removed from the Sunday edition and the format was changed to a more straightforward newscast; Turner and Espinosa were reassigned to other news programs, but Weller remained and co-anchored the Sunday morning newscast with Gina Silva until that program was cancelled by the end of the decade).
Expansion to five and a half hours
KTTV expanded Good Day L.A. to five and a half hours on December 10, , incorporating the morning news program that began at a.m. into the show. The a.m. to a.m. part of the show is anchored by Araksya Karapetyan & Tony McEwing. The a.ma.m. is hosted by Elex Michaelson, Megan Colarossi, Rita Garcia, Vanessa Borge, weather anchor Maria Quiban, entertainment reporter Julie Chang, and traffic reporters Rick Dickert and Soumada Khan.
On March 4, , Good Day L.A. changed its anchor lineup. The a.m. to 6 a.m. part is hosted by Dan Cohen and Rita Garcia, the 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. part is hosted by Araksya Karapetyan and Tony McEwing, and the 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. part is hosted by Megan Colarossi and Vanessa Borge.

KTTV morning newscasts
The station's early morning newscast, Fox 11 Morning News, premiered alongside Good Day L.A. in June ; it was originally anchored by Diana Koricke and Tony McEwing, with veteran KTTV reporter and former anchor Tony Valdez serving as an occasional fill-in anchor. Koricke left television news in June and was replaced on the broadcast by Jean Martirez (who joined the station from KCNC-TV in Denver). The show originated as an hour-long newscast beginning at 6 a.m., but was later expanded to 90 minutes, with a a.m. start time. In , an additional half-hour was added, expanding the morning newscast to two hours beginning at 5 a.m. (long after many other stations around the country, particularly in markets as large as Los Angeles, expanded their morning newscasts into the 5 a.m. slot). The morning newscast was expanded to a.m. in April
On July 14, , KTTV debuted a half-hour late morning newscast that immediately follows Good Day L.A. at a.m. The program is currently anchored by McEwing and Araksya Karapetyan. In December of that year, a half-hour noon broadcast debuted on the station, which was reformatted in September from a traditional midday newscast to a mix of news and features with Good Day anchors Edwards and Sansone brought in to anchor the broadcast.
In December , Good Day L.A expanded from a three-hour show starting at 7 a.m. to a five-and-a-half-hour show starting at a.m.
On April 1, , Good Day L.A. expanded to a six-hour show starting at 4a.m.
Critics of Good Day L.A. have praised the show for being "so wonderfully bonkers", particularly in comparison with its competition, including KTLA's morning newscast as well as the national network morning shows seen on ABC, CBS, and NBC.

Michaela Pereira joined former rival ‘Good Day L.A.’ But don’t call her disloyal
Seven years after leaving her KTLA anchor chair for a high-profile CNN gig, Michaela Pereira has returned to the local news morning shift.
But instead of coming back to her old stomping grounds at “KTLA Morning News,” which she cohosted for nine years, Pereira has jumped to crosstown rival Fox 11, where she will lead a revamped “Good Day L.A.” broadcast starting Monday.
“It’s surreal and incredible,” Pereira said of her new job during an interview last week at her home. “It’s an honor and a privilege and thrilling. I have all the feels.”
Her obvious enthusiasm comes with just a little touch of anxiety about competing against the station that was so instrumental in her success.
Said Pereira: “I remember commenting to a friend, ‘Dang, is this going to be seen like a defection? A lack of loyalty?’ I even had someone on social media accuse me of not being loyal. But you go where the opportunity is. We all have to make choices in our lives. I choose to continue to grow both personally and professionally.”
While she remembers her KTLA days with fondness, her fresh start is fueled by her mission to engage with viewers about the difficulties of coping during a pandemic.
“You wake up with your shoulders tense and trying to figure out what is going to face you today,” she said. “We hope to give you the tools to navigate that.”
The arrival of Pereira also marks a relaunch of “Good Day L.A.,” which has undergone constant upheaval and turnover since the departure of veteran host Steve Edwards amid allegations of sexual harassment. (Station executives never officially addressed the reason behind Edwards’ abrupt departure.)
News director Erica Hill-Rodriguez said the station has spent the last several months “reworking the entire show — from format to content to the look, graphics and sound signatures. We’re doing a full relaunch that will tie in to the introduction of Michaela.”
She added, “We’re looking at this show as being relentlessly relevant as we can for our audience. Times have changed and the expectations of viewers have changed, and our mission and goal is to meet our audience where they’re at. Right now that’s a place of all of us seeking a connection, news and information to help you navigate this world around you, and doing that from a place of real purpose.”
Pereira will join current anchors Tony McEwing and Araksya Karapetyan to host the 7 to 10 a.m block of the six-hour show, which also will feature Rita Garcia as solo anchor from 4 to 5 a.m. and live segment host throughout.
Making a connection with viewers will be a key theme of “Good Day L.A.,” said Pereira. “The stuff we’re going through is really hard, but I also know we have to keep talking to each other. We can’t hole up in our silos and just cross our arms. Everything with COVID feels a little overwhelming, and I’m definitely in that space along with people at home.”
Although the intensity at times “takes my breath away,” she said, “I feel driven and a sense of duty.” She added with a chuckle, “So you can imagine, I’m probably not sleeping a lot.”
Pereira’s upbeat personality and optimism helped draw viewers to “KTLA Morning News,” and the loose, easy chemistry on the team, which included co-anchor Carlos Amezcua, weatherman Mark Kriski and entertainment anchor Sam Rubin, was key to the newscast’s high ratings. Kriski and Rubin are still on the broadcast.
The team was broken up in when CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker recruited Pereira to launch the network’s morning show “New Day” along with Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan. Pereira was nervous about leaving family and friends in her beloved Los Angeles home to move to Manhattan.
“I remember thinking, ‘This is big,’” she recalled about getting the offer. “When Jeff Zucker comes knocking, you answer. To go to Manhattan to be on a big stage was huge and I really had to consider it. It seemed like a crazy time to move across the country but I knew if I didn’t do it, I would regret it for the rest of my life. It was a leap of faith.”
Calling the transition her “Mt. Everest,” Pereira found the experience rewarding. But when she got the chance to return to Los Angeles in to host her own show at sister channel HLN, she jumped.
Said Pereira, “I had the time of my life in New York but boy, was I ready to come home! That city will wring it out of you.”
On her return, she headlined “MichaeLA,” a three-hour daytime news program. The show was one of three live programs focused on human-interest stories, consumer news, weather and sports, programmed as part of an effort to reset HLN as an alternative to the politics-heavy CNN.
But when HLN decided two years later to showcase true-crime series and other taped programming, “MichaeLA,” and the other live shows, “Across America With Carol Costello” and “Crime & Justice With Ashleigh Banfield,” were yanked.
Pereira is philosophical about the cancellation: “It was really sad things went that way, but I understand the business. You get that magic in a bottle for a little but then it’s time for someone else to do it.”
She had been contemplating her next move when the COVID pandemic hit, soon followed by the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis. Increasingly concerned about the growing divisiveness in the country, she eased her mind by working more with her hands: “I took an indoor dining room table and converted it into an outdoor dining room table.
“Keeping my hands busy helped the part of my brain that was starting to panic.” She paused, choking up a bit. “It’s difficult to know that I can’t get on a plane and visit my parents in Canada. It hurts that I can’t spend Christmas with them. But that’s what we all are feeling.”
She also realized that her new venture is its own leap of faith.
“We’re launching a new show in the middle of a pandemic,” Pereira said. “That’s a different direction from a lot of shows that are laying off people or putting them on furlough. So it feels like a privilege that we’re getting to do this. I’m really looking forward to it, giving people a little bit of hope.”

Lera felt it only when she shuddered from another blow to the genital area. She began to get nervous about such a partner. Pain in the lower abdomen made her completely stop all movements. She raised her bent legs at the knees as high as possible, and with sharp claws grabbed the teen's thin ass, pressing.

There are not many people in the transport, but it will be dark in the yard until we get there. You can't go in wet panties, the classmate smiled. You are right, I said, and, drawing a classmate by the hand, I walked along the beach to a stop. There were few vacationers on this part of the beach.
