KNBC cancels 11 a.m. weekday newscast

February 22, 2010 |  3:21 pm


KNBC-TV Channel 4 has canceled “Midday Report,” its 11 a.m. newscast anchored by Kim Baldonado, and is running repeats of “Access Hollywood” in its place. The newscast, which aired for the last time Feb. 12, “was taken off the schedule in order to reallocate resources,” according to KNBC spokeswoman Erin Dittman.

Baldonado, who has won awards for her coverage of education and homelessness, will continue as a general assignment reporter for the station. She took over “Midday Report” in July after serving as a weekend anchor.
