415 Media Exclu: Jenna Susko Leaving NBC Bay Area For LA's KNBC

 NBC Bay Area has lost another reporter--my South Bay spy informs me that Jenna Susko is headed to LA to work for O and O, KNBC.

Susko was a part of the "Investigate Unit" team at the station and won numerous industry awards to boot. The move down to LA was nothing negative about KNTV; I'm told Susko liked the idea of going to the #2 market and ratings-challenged KNBC is supposedly building a bigger "I-Team."

For NBC Bay Area, it marks the sixth recent staffer to go to KNBC which is now being called "KNTV South."

  1. Does EVERYBODY leave here for LA these days?

  2. I think the younger hopefuls sure do. If you're a younger, ambitious TV newsperson, the Bay Area makes the perfect stepping stone. I think you really have to like the area or workplace to not want to elevate your career in SoCal.

  3. And KNTV is KGO South.

  4. I wonder who is next to go to KNBC. I'm guessing it would be KPIX 5's Juliette Goodrich.
