Northern California News
Northern California News (or NCN for short) aired on Chico, California television stations KHSL-TV Channel 12 (now CBS 12) and KNVN-TV Channel 24 (now NBC 24) simultaneously at 5:00pm, 5:30pm and 11:00pm from 2001 to 2005. The newscasts were anchored by Matt Keller and Maureen Naylor, with Dave Vanore covering the weather and had various sports anchors. NCN was also a part of the 90-minute morning program called Wake Up!, a program that still runs today. The two stations have since dropped NCN and only broadcast Action News at 11 together seven nights a week (anchored by Alan Marsden and Kira Klapper) and Action News Weekend Report at 6:30 on Saturdays and Sundays with longtime news reporter Debbie Cobb anchoring.
NCN also provided two local newsbreaks during KNVN's Your Show Live program during that show's 18-month run.
