KNBC Inland Empire Bureau Chief Mary Parks Leaving

The local television landscape is changing in the Inland Empire.  Mary Parks, 19 year veteran at KNBC and Inland Empire Bureau Chief will be leaving the station.   KNBC has chosen to replace her, though that position has not been filled. She will continue to report until they hire a replacement.

Mary has done good work in reporting and in the community.   She's been a thorn in the side of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, to a point they won't return her calls.   Guess it doesn't pay to report the news on Pechanga if it's not favorable.

Good Luck, Mary, hope you enjoy retirement.  And maybe we'll see you at Pietro's.

She's a good reporter. Sad that changes are being made by KNBC, the let Chris Shauble go, too. Do they still have that terrible Andy Andler?

ANYBODY THINK SHE MIGHT WANT TO TAKE ON THE CORRUPT "MACARRO CARTEL" AND THE ILLEGAL DISENROLLMENT FOR HER LASR ENDEAVER? GO OUT IN A BLAZE OF GLORY, OR JUST SLIDE INTO OBLIVIAN WHERE TIME ERASES ALL TRACES OF HER GOOD DEEDS?

As a reporter on the way out, she has no control over the stories KNBC picks up. She's lucky she's getting paid.

We get a hold of the next one and see if we can build a relationship.
