Jessica Aguirre Most Powerful Anchor at NBC Bay Area; Veteran Commands High Respect; Both Admired And Feared; But Well-Liked Too

 Still on TOP of her game--a seasoned veteran anchor of the Bay Area TV News society, Jessica Aguirre, from KNTV (NBC Bay Area) is not only well versed and well respected, she's become one of the most powerful anchors in the market.


Aguirre commands top status in San Jose and has built a wall of top-tier gravitas and elite status at the NBC O and O--how so?

Aguirre meets with the GM and ND almost daily --not your run-of-the-mill idle chit-chit mind you, but heavy-duty in-house dialogue with a secret goal in mind: DOMINATE the market. Mind you, Aguirre is well-liked and admired in the NBC BA newsroom, but more importantly, FEARED too. Why? You don't want to know. Classified material and even the big suits in NY don't know the scope of Jessica Aguirre's influence in San Jose.


Except 415 Media.
Stay tuned.

  1. Sounds like she wants her product to be top notch. Does that make her a POS too?

  6. Remember she got her start in the Bay Area at KGO -- I like her better on NBC Bay Area -- she's refined her craft and can be taken seriously these days -- something that seemed to allude her at Circle 7 -- maybe too much other top notch competition in those days.

  7. Sounds like she is the Queen bee. Queen bees don't tolerate competing queens in the hive, someone would have to go. Queen bees don't have much use for male drones either once they're on the throne. As long as all the workers acknowledge the Queen things work out well.

  9. The face work is a bit off-putting, but sadly, women in television aren't allowed to age gracefully.

  11. The worst mistake you can ever make in the TV news biz is to think that you are so important that you can't be fired or forced out ... think Brian Williams, Dan Rather, Terilyn Joe. That goes for high flying news execs too ... Jeff Zucker. The list is endless. No one is untouchable. Once you've served your purpose, you will be tossed out the door.

    One-on-one meetings with the ND and GM can pay off ... but daily? You have to be careful you don't become a p-in-the-a ... and you can't give the impression that you're providing info to the execs about your co-workers. Advice to any ND ... you have to be a stronger presence in the newsroom than your best anchor otherwise you're abdicating control.

    BTW, how's the dominating the market thing working out for NBC Bay Area?
