KNBC veep out after 12 yrs.

Asst. news director to o'see dept. while outlet seeks replacement

KNBC vice president and news director Nancy Bauer Gonzales is out after 12 years at the NBC-owned station.

Bauer Gonzales, who has run the KNBC news department since 1997, officially departs the Burbank outlet this Friday. KNBC has already started scouting for a replacement; assistant news director Jamie Foster will oversee the news department in the interim.

Bauer Gonzales’ departure had been buzzed about for weeks. KNBC president-general manager Paula Madison called the move “mutual and amicable.”

“Nancy has been a valuable contributor to the ‘Channel 4 News’ team since she joined the station in 1989, and I admire her professionalism, leadership, news sense and her decision to pursue a better balance between her work and family life,” Madison said.

Bauer Gonzales joined KNBC in April 1989 as executive producer for the “Channel 4 News,” moving up to senior exec producer in April 1995 and assistant news director in October 1996.

“I am excited to meet life’s next opportunity,” she said. “There will always be a special place in my heart for the ‘Channel 4 News’ team and everyone at NBC4.”

The Bauer Gonzales move is the most recent in a string of changes at KNBC since Paula Madison took over as G.M. last November. The station made several adjustments to its news team this past winter, such as handing walking papers to longtime “Today in L.A.” anchors Kent Shocknek and Kathy Vara.

It’s also the latest shuffle to hit the Los Angeles market, with more expected soon — including at KCBS-TV, where David Woodcock was named G.M. earlier this month, and at KCOP-TV, which under new owner News Corp. is integrating some operations with those of KTTV.
