Stephanie Adrouny has been named vp of news at San Jose NBC-owned station KNTV.

“Stephanie is a Bay Area native and a perceptive news room leader who has fostered a culture of excellence, creativity and enterprise journalism in her role as Assistant News Director of NBC Bay Area,” said KNTV president and GM Rich Cerussi. “I am certain that Stephanie will do an outstanding job in her new role.”

Adrouny put in eight years as assistant news director at ABC-owned KGO and two at KNTV.

She replaces Jonathan Mitchell, who left the station last month.

“I am excited to be part of NBC Bay Area, a station that has given me the opportunity to work in its award-winning newsroom not once but twice in my career,” said Adrouny. “NBC Bay Area is home to an exceptional group of journalists and investigators and I am looking forward to continuing to elevate the tradition of journalistic excellence that is inherent of the KNTV newsroom.”
