Univision has promoted Carolina Núñez to vice president, regional news director, responsible for the company’s newsrooms in the Bay Area, Sacramento, Fresno and Bakersfield. Until now, Nunez was news director at KDTV in San Francisco, a role she held since 2011.
Her promotion was announced about a month following Pablo Iacub’s exit as Univision regional news director. Iacub did not oversee the San Francisco newsroom. Nuñez will have a much broader role. Núñez will continue to be based at KDTV’s Univision Bay Area headquarters in San Jose.
Nuñez has worked in multiple capacities within Univision since 2006, including morning show producer and news producer at KMEX Los Angeles and Online Media Publisher at KDTV, before landing the news director job.
Given her expanded responsibilities, the company also promoted Luis Felipe Godinez to assistant news director at KDTV, to help lead local news operations.
Godinez joined KDTV as executive producer in 2012. He was previously an anchor and
producer for KINC Univision Nevada. He also worked as a reporter, video journalist and anchor for Univision in Colorado and Texas.
