KTVU announced today that Ed Chapuis will step down as news director on Jan. 18 after 10 years in the job. A press release from the station didn’t say what he would be doing next. Before KTVU, he was news director at KCRA in Sacramento for five years.
“I am looking forward to some new challenges. These are exciting times for the both broadcasting and the digital industry,” said Chapuis. “Television’s ability to connect with people combined with the explosive growth of content for mobile devices, tablets, and live streaming is creating great opportunities. I am convinced there will always be viewers searching for high quality news and information — regardless of the device.”
No replacement has been named.
