As part of the KPLR and KTVI sharing news resources, KPLR is launching a noon newscast. This isn’t uncommon, at least in New York and Chicago, where WPIX and WGN have been producing news at noon for quite some time. This is a first at KPLR.
Christine Buck, sister of FOX Sports’ Joe Buck, and daughter of late sportscaster Jack Buck will anchor. John Fuller will be providing weather for the newscast.
I personally find this a great use of Christine Buck, who has provided many great feature reports for KPLR’s news department.
KPLR News 11 at Noon will premiere on April 6.
