Who? Oh, Horton hears the sports at KTLA, starting tonight


Derrin Horton, the former KCAL-Channel 9 sportscaster whose spent the last few years bouncing around at the NFL Network, ESPN, Fox Sports Net and on Versus’ “Pros Vs. Joes,” will start his first night at KTLA-Channel 5 as the sports anchor.

He fills a spot that’s been open at the station since last February when Damon Andrews left to take a job in the Bay Area.

Horton’s sports segments will go 15 minutes long on Friday, Saturday and Sunday — a return to the expanded sports highlights that the station once had in the past. KTLA general manager Don Corsini not only brought in Horton to do sports, but has hired Micah Olhman and Victoria Recano to replace Emmett Miller and Leila Feinstein.

    KTLA needs to get rid of Michaela Pereira. I stopped watching when she took over and now it isn’t even in my rotation.
