KTTV’s ‘Good Day LA’ Co-Anchor Dorothy Lucey To Exit, Jillian Reynolds To Freelance

UPDATE: A spokesperson for KTTV has confirmed our report, including Dorothy Lucey’s departure. Her last day will be Friday. Additionally, Lucey received support from Simon Cowell. “I love Good Day LA. But cannot imagine it without Dorothy,” he tweeted on Thursday. “I wish they would change their minds. I really, really like her.”Dorothy Lucey Good Morning LA

EXCLUSIVE: Longtime Good Day LA co-anchor Dorothy Lucey will be leaving the morning program of Los Angeles’ Fox-owned station KTTV. I hear Lucey’s contract was not renewed and her last day will be later this week, possibly on Friday. Additionally, Lucey’s co-anchor Jillian Reynolds will switch from a full-time KTTV employee to freelance status. She will continue in her current duties on Good Morning LA but not always five days a week. The move is mutually beneficial for the station, as Reynolds commands a big salary, and for Reynolds, as she can pursue freely her extracurricular activities such as sponsorship deals and events. Good Day LA‘s third co-anchor, veteran Steve Edwards, is locked into a long-term contract. A KTTV spokesperson could not reached for comment.

Jillian Barberie Good Morning LAGood Day LA has been hosted by Edwards, Lucey and Reynolds (form. Barberie) since the show’s 1995 revamp — two years after it was originally launched. I hear the show will hold on-air tryouts for Lucey’s position in the mold of the syndicated Live With Kelly. In addition to being a cost-saving measure (Lucey’s paycheck also is substantial after 17 years at the station), the changes are aimed at providing a jolt to the veteran morning program, which has not been doing well in the ratings lately after once dominating Los Angeles’ morning TV race. Before joining KTTV, Lucey was co-host of the CBS primetime series How’d They Do That with Pat O’Brien.

    • Good. That morning show was always ALL about those 2 ladies and it got boring and tiresome. Time for them to move on and bring some fresh talent to the show.

      • Dorothy and her “Stevie” chatter is so irritating. She should be talking to the viewers and not pretend to be flustered, cute or spontaneous. Even Steve seems often to be frustrated with her as much as the viewers. Good Riddance. Jillian on the other hand is so rude. She is so busy “tweeting” and refuses to listen to someone’s opinion that is not in perfect alignment with hers. Steve is smart and knowledgeable and deserves better respect. Goodbye and good riddance to the women!

        • Well said! I’ve been watching since 95 and though they grew on me, I also get frustrated. Dorothy tries to hard to engage over stuff no one cares about. She definitely tries to engage Steve and he seems to want to shut up and move on, haha.

          I have to say, however, that Dorothy is a sweet lady who at least stands by her beliefs and morals, and out of the two, I respect her more.

          Jillian will forever be over the top insecure and needing to prove how ‘cool’ and ‘different’ she it. It’s usually not cool or different. Just loose morals and way too much cleavage.

          • Agree. I enjoy both the women, but sometimes Steve is trying to make a very interesting point about something that I really want to hear, and both women interrupt him so much (as well as interrupting the guests), that sometimes I just turn the channel in frustration. I have even called the station two or three times to complain that while I’m trying to listen to a guest tell a story, Jillian (mostly), but sometimes Dorothy, too, will interrupt the guest. Barbara Walters was a guest on the show one morning, and telling a cute story about John Wayne. She was interrupted so many times, she finally had to say, “Let me finish the story.” They both need to understand (mostly Jillian), that it’s about the guest, not either of them. Jillian is highly entertaining, but I get frustrated with her attempts to sing and her too-frequent name dropping. She also sometimes tries to discuss American politics beyond her current level of understanding, and Steve has to explain things to her. As for Dorothy, she seems like a nice enough lady, but does give the impression that she finds herself highly amusing and tries to be too cute. Still, I wish them both well, and I did enjoy the chemistry of the three of them together.

          • You know I agree that Dorothy should leave the show and do something else. I’ve been watching and wondering why is she telling us about the stars ..since we already read them in the magazines. And what about Jillian, now she needs to look for something else too….what is the tweeting while Steve is trying to do the news… Steve needs two new co anchors. PLEEEEEEEEZE!!!!!!!!!

            I HOPE THE BEST FOR THEM BOTH.

          • I love Dorthy. She can be annoying at times, but I believe the real problem was Jillian. She is an attention hog. Everything is about her and when she does engage in a real subject, she seems pretentious. I used to get a kick out of her when she was younger and single, but as a married mother, I think she should have evolved more. She isn’t qualified for the job she has, she wasn’t even qualified to be a weather girl. She belongs on TMZ.

        • I agree with you – I have been wanting Dorothy fired for a long time! I get so tired of her complaining about “having” to talk about the “sleaze”!! That is what she is being paid big bucks to do and Boo hoo! you have to do your job!

          She talks too much about herself – acting all flustered and out of breath?! Out with the old and time for someone new – let’s get someone in there that seems to enjoy her job!

        • I used to be a big fan of the show but found it almost unwatchable lately – and that was primarily because of Jillian and her incessant moaning and chatter during interviews. The woman just won’t shut up. I think Steve’s great – very intelligent. I basically liked Dorothy (and thought she was pretty hot for 54) but she was also getting a little too political for me lately.

          But Jillian is the one I couldn’t take anymore. They should put Lauren Sivan in there – she’s hilarious on Red Eye.

          Comment by Rock — Thursday May 24, 2012 @ 12:59pm PDT  
          • I agree. I could not stand Dorothy anymore with her left wing brainwashing political views. She was not hired to be a political commentator so who the hell cares what she thinks? She should have shut up a long time ago and just read her stupid gossip. She has become way too political over the years with one left-wing view offering no chance for a Repubican rebuttal. I have complained about her to the station several times for that reason. Jillian has taken a turn for the worst acting like more and more of a sleazebag lately. Not funny. Steve is semi-comatose most mornings. They should really clean house and send them all packing. I used to watch them daily but this past year found them intolerable and switched to channel 5. They are more polite, give you the news and much less politics.

          • I agree with the comment below by Trish. I think most of the women watching that don’t like these two are jealous!!! Seriously, if you think these two were hired for their speaking ability and not their appearance you are clueless!! Steve was the one who balanced those two out, and personally I find it to be very boring now and don’t want to watch…

          Comment by Allie — Thursday May 24, 2012 @ 9:31pm PDT  
          • I too found myself changing the channel more and more. That Jillian needs to act her age… It’s ok, to dress cute and stylish but she was getting way out of control. She dresses alot of the times like a hooker. I like to show my well endowed cleavage,, but she’s too old to be showing so much. It’s tacky and I’m sure as her kids get older they will be embarrassed by their mother. She is very rude when others are talking. She always interrupts and you can tell by her conversations that she is not very intelligent at all. She is very insecure and she always turned me off when ever she started singing. She can not sing. PERIOD! She has no class at all. And she acts like she’s buddies with famous people. I’ve also noticed that whenever she showed her home on the show, her friends were always white. And whenever negative comments were made re things to do with the black people she always acted so offended and made her own comments to appear to be on the side of the black people. She always seemed so phony regarding that. She is one dump bimbo.. She needs to be gone completely from the show and I’m sure it’s coming. And Dorothy acted like she knew all of the gossip but she was only just reading the rag mags to get the info the same way the rest of us get it.

        • OMG! I though it was just me being my usual uber critical self. but, no you guys saw what i saw. That Dorothy with her sun bleached skin and grinning about things that weren’t even remotely funny. I’m so so glad they got rid of her. She was too full or herself and all the interruptions while a guest was trying to speak was just too much.

          Jillian on the other hand is a bona fide air-head and proud of it. Hopefully, she will stop sharing about how much sex she doesn’t have with her husband (who by the way is a hottie) AND LET SOMEONE ELSE TALK! I say good rid dins and be gone. I’m just saying…

Good luck to them both.

          • I was wondering when someone would mention Dorothy Lucey’s over gravelly voice. She drove me crazy, and the stupid grin on her face–I don’t miss her at all. As for Jillian–to me she finally grew up and got her act together, for anyone who has watched the show since it started, she has changed for the better, she could lay off the Twitter and pay more attention to her job. The network should consider how these people “sound” voice wise before they hire them on to TALK. A pleasant voice is a definite PLUS!!!

        • ABSOLUTELY! You hit the…, well, nail on the head. I stopped watching GDLA almost 3 years ago for the reasons you point out. I switched over to the 4:30 am news with Tony and Jean but I quick that too about 8 months ago because of Jean’s constant, unrelenting interruptions. Poor Lauren Simonette over at the NY business (stock exchange) desk often cannot get a word in edgewise. Embarrassing to say the least. I noticed they changed the format to let only Tony talk with Lauren, and Jean only sometimes. But “sometimes” is too much for me. Oh, and I concur: GOOD RIDANCE!

        • In the beginning. Steve was fairly ok to Dorothy—then Steve began tossing
          all his interest over to Jillian—and looking pretty foolish.
          Then, seems Steve and Jilian began picking on Dorothy so much I almost
          came over to the studio and let them have it.
          Jillian appeared to be jeolous of Dorothy in the beginning and was so sickening with her continued insults to her.
          Jilliun also had all these personalities. Whomever she was last around (other stars she admired) she would take on their total personality. It was interesting and that was the reason I watched —-I loved to see what personaligy would be next. She seemed to be such and inferior person and tried to cover it up but to a rare few—–it came out very clear to viewers and to
          Steve on the show even commented a few times.Jillian a very complicated person.
          She continues to need some form of counseling.She had a crazy upbringing and I am sure it left a special side to her. I do wish all of them happiness and Jillan really needs to work on what causes her to be not nice to anyone she is jeolous of and also get rid of all the duel personality. She has done well but that nasty side and the way she was criticle to Dorothy and also regarding Dorothys faith in God. She made fun of Dorothy about that many times and I know that is going to come back and bite her in her skinny little butt. Amen

Any station that treats people the way they did the girls, does not deserve my support in the morning. I’m watching Good Morning America now. Good luck Steve, we love you man, but the fun of the show before was the sparing back and forth. Thanks or the many years of entertainment. Sincerely, Lynne & Mike.

So tired of Jill and all of her warped opinions. I tape the early ch 11 news with Tony and jean. Then no more commercials or annoying Jillian.

      • My point exactly. I love Steve but he is old as dirt and nobody bulks at his age or salary demands. The show works because of the 3 of them. They have great chemistry; I love Dorothy and Jill. When they tried to replace them before the show TANKED!!!! If you think it’s real news you are a fool. We watch it because they are entertaining and who don’t mind being silly to start your morning off right!!! I agree the field reporters are not good and the ratings started tanking when they took away jobs by firing cameramen for automated cameras the have a mind of their own. I wish Dorothy the best of luck. You will miss here when she is gone. I hope they get wise and don’t let Jill leave. If she does go, I think I will have to listen to the radio in the morning.

        • Sorry for Dorthy anytime someone looses their job its not a good thing. I agree Good Day La is entertaining love to start my day watching show if they let Jillian go I will also leave wont be the same.

        • I agree. I am a fan because of Jill. She’s an animal activist and I started watching because of the chemistry on the show.

        • They gave the show personality. Do we really need to hear all the negative every day? I will not watch this show without them

          • I agree….you can turn to most other channels to watch depressing negativity. At least they reported news AND made me laugh. Too bad they can’t stay and just bring in some new and amazing changes!
            Good luck and God Bless…I will miss the show.

        • I agree with Gemma! “Who don’t mind being silly in the morning?” I can watch serious news on any other channel, but would rather not. I love these 3 together, and they are the only one’s I will watch. It’s a way to hear what’s going on in the world, but without going off to work too depressed.

Its mistake I hope they fix quick! If you want serious sad news watch any other channel. they were great and will be missed!!!!!!

        • It is time for Dorothy and Jillian to go. I need real news in the morning. I agree that Jillian and Dorothy talks too much when a guest is on the show. I called the station years ago to complain about a story Jillian was covering. She refused to talk about the story because she thought it was cruelty to animals. I wanted to know what it was about.

      • It explains exactly why Steve Edwards is still there. He’s the only anchor that reports the actual news, while the others report on what they ate the night before, or what they are wearing.
        Steve is the LA version of Regis, a good straight-forward anchor that deserves to be there. The ratings haven’t dropped because of Steve.

    • Greed and dumb co-anchors. It’s a huge mistake with luceys departure and soon Reynolds I’m sure. I’ve watched the show since the mid 90s and enjoy the delivery for news from Edwards, lucey, Reynolds and occasional covering Tony. I’m always annoyed by the covering reporters like Sanchez who only cares about close ups and loves the camera/spotlight. Trust me I’ve seen her at a couple restaurants. Your not an actor nor a reporter. Why are these type of annoying people keeping their jobs and the good ones not? Oh well time for more xm/Sirius news instead.

    • I love Good Day LA and the only reason I watch it is because of Jillian, Dorthy and Steve Edwards. They are good together and I love that Jillian reps for the Valley. I will not watch the morning if they leave. They are making a mistake by letting them go.

    • I am happy about the change as I really just want to hear the news and not all the babble that goes along with the two females. Jillian is way too opiniated, which I thought was against the “Journalist rule” and Dorothy and Jillian are both rude as they talk over Steve who is just trying to do his job. Maybe now I can hear the news. Everytime they both were on vacation, their replacements were so much better. Good job….Good Day LA!!

      Comment by Carole R — Thursday May 24, 2012 @ 9:34am PDT  
      • I can’t believe all the complaints about the show. If you don’t like it or want only news why don’t you change the station. The reason I watch is because of the 3 hosts and the fact that they don’t always agree. I usually end up changing the channel when they have a replacement for one of the three. I watched every morning from 7-8 before going to work. Dorothy will be missed.

        • I agree, I never watched the news before, so depressing….. Started watching when Dorothy & Jillian joined Good Day L.A. At least they are honest….. Who wants to listen to Anchors that sound like robots!!!! Good Luck on the new chapter in your lives. I would change the channel if another co-anchor was in THEIR chairs! You will be greatly missed :( I will no longer watch that morning news……

    • This is good news. The show was getting a little too zaney for a news show. Jillian was annoying, but I can’t pipoint what I did not like about her. Dorothy, on the other hand seemed like she had a lot to say but was fighting for enough time ot say it. Good luck to Dorothy, I am sure she will do well where ever she goes…

    • I am very disappointed at the laying off of Dorothy Lucy. I got so tired of watching all of those other boring news shows. Steve, Dorothy and Jillian start my morning everyday. I enjoy the banter and their different personalities. Good Day LA is about entertaining us and they do it so naturally. If I wanted to watch a station that was all about the news I would be watching something else. The show won’t be the same without Dorothy. I have been considering not watching it anymore, and if they get rid of Jillian, I will not watch it.

She also wnet on and on about her x baseball playing x husband and all her very OLD credits. She has no charm nor dignity. Now her late night ads for weight loss are perfect for her. I L O V E to watch Channel 11 Fox each day without those two witless females. Shep Smith is my fave on Cable Fox News. Thank you Fox news for a refreshing local morning show.

  • WooHoo and Hurray! Our prayers are finally answered Hopefully they will find a replacement for Lucey that doesn’t sound like Yosemite Sam and will report a story rather than lose herself in her own OCD religeous spewing ways that Lucey does.
    Jillian can be replaced by any out of work monkey out there. Now we no longer have to be subject to her fakiness and unbelievable ignorant social commentaries and inept political views she thinks she is so well versed on but can’t hold an argument.
    Winner Winner Winner Steve Edwards!! He is a human almenac and such a pleasure he watch each morning.
    NICE JOB GOOD DAY LA!!!

    • Suggestion for Jillian at your next gig: When someone mentions a famous person you’ve never heard of, DON’T tell the audience, “I have no idea who that is.” Ignorance is bad enough; trumpeting it on TV is even worse.

      Comment by cadavra — Monday May 21, 2012 @ 11:13am PDT  
      • Same is true for Lauren Sanchez…she never knows who anyone is and always blames it on her being so young(!) I think she’s like 43 now, so the whole “young” excuse doesn’t work. And it shouldn’t be an excuse anyway…people existed and things happened before you were born – don’t be so ignorant about the world.

        Comment by Mr. T. — Tuesday May 22, 2012 @ 12:54pm PDT  
      • Jillian: The next time someone as inspiring and gentlemanly as Jim Abbot appears on the show, zip your lip and let the man speak. Trust me, nobody cared that your “ex” who played baseball, but they did want to hear what Abbot had to say, which you made virtually impossible with your jabbery me-me-me interruptions. Look up the definition of STFU in an Internet dictionary and you’ll find a photo of Jillian.

        Comment by California Granny — Thursday May 24, 2012 @ 8:39am PDT  
        • And her idiocy was no better displayed just this morning when she was inexplicably interviewing Steve Garvey (w/ Steve) and just asked silly questions (that she had to refer from her cheat sheet as she was asking them)! It’s Steve Garvey, your co-worker has just been fired and you will be soom – and you can’t even hold a casual conversation with a local baseball star? “Uh, what do you think about drugs and steroids Steve?” What kind of krap is that?

          And she still moaned and made noises during his answers. Pathetic.

        • I so totally agree with the both of you.. I wanted to hear both of these mens stories. How many times does she have to go on about how she was married to a baseball player? WE KNOW!! Just like we know her hubby now is a sniper. She needs to learn to ask a question and then shut-UP..Before you know it~ time is up and I have no idea why the 2 of them were even on the show. Sometimes you can see in the guests eyes they are ready to blow. I found Abbot to be a great inspiration. WOW… (through her interruptions)

        • I waited to watch a segment on flower arranging where the teaser said they were gonna teach how to make flower arrangements. Of course Jillian constantly interrupted and hijacked the segment and it ended up being how she arranges flowers. She made a horrendous arrangement while the professional just gave up and watched,she couldnt get one word in. I was so disappointed & didnt learn one thing.

          Comment by anonymous — Monday June 4, 2012 @ 9:32am PDT  
          • Exactly! I have been watching GDLA for years and was so over Jillian interrupting. The flower arranging segment was the last straw for me. Jillian interrupts every single guest on the show and all her “stuff” piled up at the end of the desk just looks stupid. Just let the pros (guests) do what they do Jillian and please treat them like a good hostess would treat a guest! I usually just end up aggravated or changing the channel. However, when Steve jumps in it’s always with some interesting or valuable commentary.

    Comment by The truth — Monday May 21, 2012 @ 9:23am PDT  
    • Totally agree. The smokers/drinkers voice was almost as annoying as the constant “hungover” look nearly EVERY morning. This lady drinks too much booze, in fact, she appears still drunk from the night before 60% of the time. It has been so painfully obvious, and difficult and uncomfortable to watch day in and day out.Now we can focus on the news. I do wish them both well, regardless.

  • Wow. They had the same anchors. I haven’t watched that show in a decade. That’s pretty impressive since the women were pushing 40 even back then. Can’t imagine paying top dollar for 50 year old women. As long as Edwards is around they can bring in a new batch of female anchors with less mileage.
    One of the last times I tuned I was shocked to find that Lucey took a bath with her son when he was almost 5 years old.

  • There are two words for this AGEISM and SEXISM.
    Steve Edwards gets to stay?
    Like he’s the brains of this operation?
    Why don’t people get more pissed blatant discrimination like this?

    Comment by Sally — Monday May 21, 2012 @ 9:38am PDT  
    • Yes, its clearly an issue of ageism and sexism for Jillian and Lucey. Ironically, though, it creates more opportunities for possibly two other women to create a career. The question then remains, why aren’t the men more angry, Steve is staying on, which means some other man out there doesn’t get the chance at his slot.

      When the rules are different for the sexes, its mean this:
      loss of opportunities come out of the instability for some (the women)
      loss of opportunity for advancement for some (other men) others.

  • Dorothy Lucey is the most annoying person in television news. She can’t speak without waving her hands around in front of her face like she’s directing an airplane into the gate. Maybe she’ll get a job at the airport.

    Comment by Not a Fan — Monday May 21, 2012 @ 9:39am PDT  
    • I quit watching soooo long ago because of Lucey and her ‘waving’ hands! I got tired of trying to hear a complete story with all the non-stop interruptions by her and Jillian. Ageism or Sexism…..I don’t care, these two people are the most self absorbed, noisy women on TV and should have been replaced years ago!!! Edwards is probably looking forward to completing a sentence!!

  • Yup, going in for younger and prettier female anchor, while that fossil Steve Edwards, is locked into a long-term contract.

    It’s seems that if one of the goals was to rein in salary cost, start with the one who’s making the biggest cheese on the show – Steve Edwards.
