Sacramento Station Hires Race and Culture Producer

By Kevin Eck 

Katie Kim is joining Tegna’s Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV as a race and culture content producer.

Kim comes from Tegna’s WBIR in Knoxville where she was a producer in residence. She announced the move on Linkedin and starts Jan. 17.

“As an Asian-American journalist, I’ve always felt a personal responsibility to cover marginalized communities that are so often overlooked,” wrote Kim. “This new job will let me dedicate all my hours to do just that. Can’t wait to update everyone on my journey.”


Tegna said the producer in residence program is for graduating college seniors and is “designed to develop the next great broadcast and digital producers for our newsrooms, the program includes a two-week producer boot camp and then a two-year, full-time producer position at a local station.”
