Former Oakland Reporter Joins Local School District

By Kevin Eck 

John Sasaki has been hired by the Oakland Unified School District as its director of communications.

Sasaki left Oakland Fox-owned station KTVU in April, after working at the station for 20 years.

“I will do everything in my power to promote education and all the incredible accomplishments of Oakland’s students,” said Sasaki.

The San Jose Mercury News reports Sasaki will be the primary public information officer for the school district.
