KCBS-TV (channel 2) is a television station in Los Angeles, California, United States, serving as the West Coast flagship of the CBS network. It is owned and operated by the network’s CBS News and Stations division alongside independent outlet KCAL-TV (channel 9). Both stations share studios at the Radford Studio Center on Radford Avenue in the Studio City section of Los Angeles, while KCBS-TV’s transmitter is located on the western side of Mount Wilson near Occidental Peak.

On July 13, 2022, it was announced that KCAL would introduce a new seven-hour morning newscast to replace that of KCBS, running from 4:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. As a replacement, KCBS planned to air the live East Coast broadcast of CBS Mornings from 4 to 6 a.m. PT, followed by a simulcast of the 6 a.m. hour of the KCAL morning show, and then the West Coast edition of CBS Mornings. CBS News and Stations president Wendy McMahon referred to the changes as “an audience growth opportunity”, citing that KCAL’s early morning lineup had largely consisted of paid programming, and that the changes would provide additional options for both local and national news to viewers.

Concurrently, it was also revealed that CBS planned to promote KCAL as the main local news outlet of its Los Angeles duopoly; when KCAL News Mornings premiered on January 5, 2023, news programming across both stations was rebranded as KCAL News, as part of a rebranding of all CBS-owned stations to align themselves with the network’s current corporate identity.
