NewsCenter eraEdit

On September 19th 2009, KLAC FOX 2 & KLCA 9 rebranded to the NewsCenter brand. The slogan was changed to News that's Centered to your Life & was refocused to cover on more community news, including news from outlying communities. Local news headlines from the LA Newspaper Group & other MediaNews Group newspapers are displayed on the ticker, "street team" submissions of video & photos from viewers are featured, reporters end stories with NewsCenter rather than the individual station names & mic flags & news vehicles have been branded to show both stations @ once (previously the KLAC logo was displayed on half the sides & the KLCA logo on the other half). NewsCenter claims that they produce more local news than any other TV station in the country, with reporters in Ventura County, the Inland Empire & Orange County & the only LA TV station with 2 helicopters
