KTLA, the Tribune-owned Los Angeles station, has hired two new anchors, Micah Ohlman and Victoria Recano. The CW-affiliate announced the new hires in a memo on Monday, reports LAObserved.
Ohlman, the nephew of recently departed KNBC star Paul Moyer, got his start in broadcasting in Billings, Montana. He was KABC’s weekend anchor from 2002 until he left the station earlier this year. After his departure, rumors began to swirl that Ohlman was in line for a top anchor gig at KTLA.
Recano began her career at St. Louis’ KPLR at age 15, when she won a teen anchor spot for an after-school television variety show. After college, she returned to KPLR as a general assignment reporter, and since then has worked as a reporter and anchor for TechTV, ZDTV, and Bay Area-based KNTV. She joins the KTLA after four years on “The Insider,” CBS’ entertainment newsmagazine.
The duo will replace KTLA’s most recent anchor duo of Emmett Miller and Leila Feinstein. Miller had already been reassigned back to KTLA’s early morning newscasts, while KTLA hasn’t yet commented on Feinstein’s future with the station.
Ohlman and Recano will take over KTLA’s signature 10 p.m. “Prime News” and its newer 6:30 p.m. newscast starting sometime in September.
