By Kevin Eck 

San Jose NBC owned station KNTV is expanding its weekday news programming with the addition of a weekly 30-minute 4:30 p.m. beginning September 12.

The new newscast will be anchored by Bay Area native Audrey Asistio (pictured) and meteorologist Vianey Arana.

“We are excited about bringing our audiences into the process of how we cover the news with this earlier start at 4:30 p.m., available via live stream as well,” said president and general manager Stacy Owen. “These changes to our line-up emphasize our commitment to keeping the Bay Area informed about what’s happening in their local communities, no matter where they are.”


“The expansion of our news programming is an indication of NBC Bay Area’s commitment to providing comprehensive local news coverage to the communities we serve,” said Stephanie Adrouny, vice president of news. “NBC Bay Area News at 4:30 will give viewers an early look at the day’s top local stories—and what the national headlines and latest trending news mean to the Bay Area.”

In addition to the 4:30 show, the station will debut a new afternoon lineup, featuring NBC News Daily at noon—and a first run of NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt at 4 p.m.
