In the first four hours for the new season of '24', various L.A. TV reporters got to portray themselves in that alternate dimension.
John Beard is the anchor for KTTV Fox11 10 O'Clock News in Los Angeles.
Elizabeth Espinosa was seen as a field reporter. She's a reporter and weekend co-anchor for 'Good Day L.A.', which also airs on FOX.
Steve Edwards has hosted 'Good Day Live', 'Good Day L.A.', 'AM Los Angeles', and 'Get Rich Quick'. He also appeared on 'Entertainment Tonight' and 'Hollywood Squares' as well as in the action drama 'Street Hawk'.
Here's writer/producer Ken Levine's take on their appearances:
