KTLA-TV Channel 5 has hired two new anchors to take over its 10 p.m. newscast starting Sept. 14: Micah Ohlman, a former weekend anchor at KABC-TV Channel 7, and Victoria Recano, a former reporter for the syndicated "The Insider" and "Inside Edition."

The pair also will team on a new 6 p.m. weekday newscast that KTLA plans to introduce the same day, challenging the local newscasts on KCBS-TV Channel 2, KNBC-TV Channel 4 and KABC-TV Channel 7.

KTLA's current 10 p.m. anchors are getting new assignments. Jason Martinez will become a weekend anchor, and Leila Feinstein will produce what the station described as a "daily healthcare initiative" that will air on various KTLA newscasts and on websites owned by its parent, Tribune Co. (which also owns The Times).
