NBC4’s continued Emmy Award success can be attributed to the station’s ongoing reinvestment initiatives, designed to strengthen the station’s news gathering operations and expand its brand throughout the market.
The NBC4 News at 11 p.m. is Southern California's leading newscast with legendary Co-Anchors Colleen Williams and Chuck Henry along with Weathercaster Fritz Coleman and Sports Anchor Fred Roggin.
The station has also recently introduced a new Today in LA morning news team, and expanded its investigative unit.
Also, two news franchises that continue to grow in popularity include Life Connected, a weekly segment that celebrates diversity and stories of community goodwill; and Ask Dr. Bruce, a weekly segment in which Chief Health, Medical and Science Correspondent, Bruce Hensel, M.D., addresses viewer-submitted health questions.
