REGIONAL ROUNDUP June - San Francisco Bay Area

CONGRATULATIONS, 2023 Emmy® Award recipients!

Congratulations to all of the 2023 Northern California Area Emmy Award recipients, especially everyone representing the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose television market!
The June 3 Emmy Awards Gala, held in San Francisco’s Union Square at the San Francisco Hilton Union Square, was a sold-out success with more than 600 people attending. As far as station tally totals in our market, the most went to KSTS Telemundo 48 in San Jose, tying for a total of seven in the Chapter with KUVS Univision 19 in Sacramento. Also, congratulations to market representatives and our Board of Governors’ colleagues, Susan A. Bradley of Susan A. Bradley Photography and Devin Fehely of CBS Bay Area KPIX upon being awarded this year’s Governors’ Service Medallion. Congratulations again to ALL recipients throughout our Chapter, and a special thanks to everyone from throughout the Chapter who traveled to the Bay Area to join us for this year’s gala. 

Pam Moore Announces Retirement

Veteran KRON 4 anchor Pam Moore, who joined the station in 1991, announced her retirement June 6. Moore has been one of the main evening anchors for the station since she began in March of that year. A Detroit native, Moore anchored at the station with the likes of Catherine Heenan, Vicki Liviakis, Suzanne Shaw, Wendy Tokuda, Tom Sinkovitz, Ken Wayne and the late Pete Wilson. While her last newscast as an anchor will be in late June, Moore will remain with the station to work on special projects. She was inducted into the Chapter’s distinguished Silver Circle in 2010.

NBC Bay Area Photographer Graduates

He’s been burning the midnight oil and for a very good reason. Veteran Bay Area photojournalist Michael Horn went back to college and has earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Wildfire Science, graduating from California State University, San Marcos. He graduated on May 19. Horn plans to leverage his education in ways that elevate the journalism at KNTV NBC Bay Area and to educate the public on relevant topics such as wildfire prevention, protection, and natural resource topics. He will continue coursework with the university this fall, when he begins a Masters program with the University of Idaho along the same subject matter. It should be no wonder if you’ve heard of Horn: currently serving the station as director of photography for special projects, he has been with NBC Bay Area since 2014. Previously, he worked for KGO-TV in San Francisco from 1998 to 2008 and for KION/KCBA in Salinas-Monterey from 1995 to 1998.
