KTLA Channel 5 will launch a weekend edition of its weekday morning news starting April 9.

The Saturday and Sunday versions of the news will be anchored by Chris Burrous and Mary Beth McDade. The newscasts will air 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. on Saturdays and 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Sundays.

Burrous most recently co-anchored ‘PIX Morning News,’ the morning newscast for KTLA’s sister station WPIX in New York City. McDade has been a reporter at KTLA since 2009, preceded by stints at KCAL/KCBS and Fox 11 KTTV.


[Updated at 1:50 p.m.] An earlier version of this story said the newscasts would launch tomorrow.
