KXTV has named Monika Diaz director of content.

Diaz will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Sacramento ABC affiliate’s news department. She will also lead development of the strategic vision for the station’s overall growth.

“We are delighted to welcome Monika to ABC10 as director of content,” said Risa Omega, president and general manager of KXTV. “Her well-rounded experience and leadership will benefit our newsroom as we continue our focus on award-winning enterprise storytelling and investigative journalism.”


Diaz was director of content at Tegna, supporting content initiatives, innovation and recruiting for 15 stations across the country. In that multi-faceted role, she helped implement Tegna’s Inclusive Journalism program, working with stations on content audits and action planning. She also supported WXIA’s Atticus investigative reporting team. In 2021, Diaz provided support to KARE in Minneapolis during the Derek Chauvin trial as an executive producer. She also co-produced Power to Change: The Legacy of George Floyd.

Before that, she worked as news director at the Fox affiliate in Sacramento. Earlier in her career, she worked as a reporter at Tegna’s WFAA in Dallas and KXTV in Sacramento, KSTS 48 Telemundo in San Francisco and WSVN in Miami.

“I am excited and honored to join ABC10 in this role,” added Diaz. “I look forward to working with the exceptional team of journalists who work diligently to serve our viewers and make an impact in the Greater Sacramento area and beyond.”
