Luis has been at KVBC for the past two years. Before taking the weekend morning anchor job at the NBC station in Vegas, he was news director at KYMA-TV from June 2004-2006.
At the RTNDA conference a few weeks ago, Luis told me he missed working in management and wanted to be in charge of a news department again. About leaving Las Vegas he says:
“I’ve been here for the past two years. I’ve had a great time here, but I wanted a new challenge and this opportunity came up. Some people ask me what’s the new challenge in something I’ve already done… and I tell them… it’s pretty much a whole new staff I get to work with. I had great success when I was there the first time and many of the people I hired are now in larger markets. Well I want to be able to help this new group accomplish their goals and move up in their careers as well. Coaching is something I’ve always enjoyed doing… and I’m very much looking forward to doing it again. ”
Luis won’t even be taking a break between jobs. His last day at KVBC is May 25th and he starts at KYMA on May 26th.
