After almost two years as vice president of news at KNBC, Vickie Burns is leaving the Los Angeles NBC O&O.
“Vickie Burns has decided to leave KNBC to pursue opportunities closer to her family,” a KNBC spokesperson told TVSpy. “We’re so grateful to her for her contributions and wish her the very best in her future endeavors.”
“When Craig moved to his new role, I committed to helping a new leader with transition,” Burns wrote in a farewell note to staff obtained by LA Observed. “Now, it’s time for Steve to select a News Director to help lead the next phase of growth for KNBC and time for me to get back east of the Mississippi.”
Before joining KNBC, Burns held a variety of management positions at NBC stations in New York, Chicago and Washington, DC.
