‘Good Day LA’ is under major changes.
Longtime co-anchor Dorothy Lucey is leaving the show. According to Deadline.com, her contract was not renewed. The station confirms her last day is Friday.
And that’s not all.
Fan favorite Jillian Reynolds status will change from a full time KTTV employee to freelance and will NOT be featured on the morning show five days a week.
As for award winning co-anchor Steve Edwards, he is locked into a long term contract and will be continuing his status as full time. Getitwhit hears the station will be holding tryouts for Dorothy Lucey’s position in hopes to create a mold of ‘Live With Kelly.’
Why the change? ‘Good Day LA’ has dramatically lost ratings over the years. Dorothy Lucey was being paid a ridiculous amount and Jillian Reynolds is busy focusing on charities and sponsorship deals.
This is sad to the LA community, who has been watching the trio since 1995. ‘Good Day LA’ is notorious for their celebrity guests and interest in pop culture.
