NBC Bay Area weekend anchor, Diane Dwyer, a Bay Area native who also had a multi-year stint at KTVU, is leaving the station.
Her last broadcast is June 8. She will continue to be involved with the station on some special projects from time to time.
Dwyer teaches at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and is involved with the Institute of Design at Stanford.
VP of News and Director Jonathan Mitchell informed staff of Dwyer's departure in a memo--here's a portion:
Diane will be a part of some special projects in the year to come, and while we won’t see her every weekend, she’ll still contribute on-air from time-to-time.
I’d like to thank Diane for her years of service to NBC Bay Area and our community. Diane is an excellent journalist and we’ll miss her on the weekends, but we’re excited about our future projects together.
