Another TV station in the San Francisco-Oakland TV market has ended up on the wrong side of the story while working across the bay in Oakland. This time it was a KGO crew that was targeted by thieves while outside of an art gallery and boutique in Jack London Square.
According to SFGate, Nick Smith, a reporter for the San Francisco ABC owned station, chased the suspected thieves as they sped off in a green Jaguar.
While the crew was inside the store, thieves broke windows of the news van and the guard’s Chevrolet Cobalt parked across the street. No cameras or expensive gear was taken, just personal items including an iPhone.
This is the latest in a string of attacks on local media in Oakland. Last November, a cameraman for CBS owned station KPIX was beaten a robbed of his camera during a live shot.
TVSpy has asked KGO for comment. We will update when we hear back.
