UPDATE: Sad to report Mary Parks has passed from cancer Nov. 23, 2020 . A very nice person and terrific reporter. Thanksgiving week won't be the same for her family.
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.
