Jamie Novogrod has been named assistant news director for KNBC and Telemundo 52 (KVEA) in Los Angeles.

Novogrod will report to Marina Perelman, vice president of news for NBC4, and Mike Gaytán, vice president of news for Telemundo 52. His first day with the stations will be Monday, March 11.

Novogrod will be responsible for managing the day-to-day news coverage, investigative, weather and breaking news across all NBC4 and Telemundo 52 platforms. Working closely with Perelman and Gaytán, he will contribute to shaping the station’s editorial vision to serve Southern California’s diverse communities.


“Jamie is a dynamic journalist and leader with extensive foreign, national, and local reporting experience,” said Perelman. “His track record of producing cutting-edge content and leading editorial teams will build upon our legacy of engaging and impactful storytelling.”

Most recently, Novogrod was part of LA Times Studios, the Entertainment Division of the Los Angeles Times, where he oversaw video production across the Times’ studio initiatives, including live in-person and virtual events, co-productions with emerging filmmakers and a daily news magazine show on Spectrum News 1 SoCal. Previously, he served as LA Bureau Chief for VICE News Tonight on HBO, where he supervised correspondents, producers and post-production staff and was responsible for news coverage spanning the western United States, Mexico, and South America.

“Jamie’s arrival to our news teams marks an exciting chapter for the stations,” said Gaytán. “His dedication, extensive investigative journalism background, and vast experience covering the Southern Border will further strengthen Telemundo 52’s commitment to delivering impactful stories that resonate with our audiences.”
