LA Reporter Headed Back up The 5

Three years ago Jenna Susko left KNTV in San Francisco to join KNBC in LA as an Investigative Reporter that focused on Hollywood.

But now, Susko is headed back up the 5 freeway to San Francisco.

Here is the internal memo, obtained by FTVLive that was sent to the staff at KNBC:

The journey from Northern California to Hollywood has taken a U-Turn for Jenna Susko, but for good reason. Jenna will be leaving us at the end of this week to join her fiancé in S.F. and soon get married later this summer.

Jenna joined us from KNTV about 3 years ago to start up the investigative franchise focusing on Hollywood. It was not an easy challenge considering it was really a first for this market to dedicate an investigative TV reporter to the entertainment industry.  Jenna and team did some great work, most notably the stories about Hollywood tour buses.

While this was an easy decision for Jenna, choosing her new future family over work, it was not without some anguish. Even though she grew up in Florida, Jenna always wanted to work in Los Angeles and specifically at KNBC. She fulfilled that dream and now it’s on to others.

I want to thank her for all she has done for us and wish her the best as she begins the next adventure and chapter in her life. Jenna's last day will be this Friday.
