Liberté Chan Leaves News for Station’s Entertainment Show

By Kevin Eck 

On Sunday, Liberté Chan said goodbye to the KTLA weekend morning news.

Chan told viewers her news contract was coming to an end and that she is going to focus on LA Unscripted, which airs weekday evenings at 7 p.m.

“To say I was passionate and grateful for this opportunity is a huge understatement,” Chan said during Sunday’s show. “I’m so grateful to you, our viewers. Thank you for allowing me into your home and letting me share a little bit of sunshine.”

She’s worked as a meteorologist on the L.A. weekend morning newscast since 2012. During her first run at the station, she was a meteorologist and reporter under the late L.A. news legend Hal Fishman. She left the station to work at KCOY-KKFX on California’s Central Coast and then moved to KMIR in Palm Springs before returning to KTLA in 2010.

LA Unscripted launched in September and is described as a show that “will help viewers and online users discover L.A. in a whole new way, focusing on the people, places, and personalities that make the city and Southern California the most unique, diverse, and vibrant place in the world.”
