KTLA is proud to launch Off the Clock, a new streaming show featuring Megan Henderson, Chris Schauble and Henry DiCarlo, available exclusively on KTLA+, the station’s smart TV app.
After anchoring the KTLA 5 Morning News, Chris, Megan and Henry get to kick back and relax on this new show, giving viewers their take on the latest tech trends, superhero news, healthy headlines and much more. Plus, on Off the Clock they won’t be getting the wrap from producers.
“This is a chance to step away from the serious news of the day, have some fun and connect with our viewers,” KTLA News Director Pete Saiers said. “We know our viewers expect us to be on more and more platforms, and this is a big part of that.”
Off the Clock highlights the good in the community by talking to local nonprofits and other groups working to make the world a better place, according to its producers. The OTC crew also features weekly segments such as Money to Burn (consumer news), Jury’s Out (legal questions) and For the Love of Pets (highlighting animal rescues).
“This show is part of the ‘plus’ in KTLA+,” said Janene Drafs, the station’s vice president and general manager. “That’s important to us. We want to make sure our smart TV app is more than just what you see on Channel 5. KTLA has been serving Southern California for generations and here’s one more opportunity to reach our most loyal fans and be there for them on new platforms.”
Off the Clock is produced by Kara Marken and Kristan Kelleher, and directed by Raina Pratto.
KTLA+ is available for free on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. More information is available here.
