Los Angeles NBC, ABC Correspondents on the Move

NBC News just announced it has hired Diana Alvear (right) as a network correspondent based in the network’s LA bureau. Alvear will report for all platforms of NBC News when she joins July 23.

Alvear comes from ABC News in Los Angeles, where she was a correspondent for the network’s affiliate news service NewsOne. In the last few years, Alvear has covered some of the biggest international stories including the Royal Wedding, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami and the rescue of the Chilean miners.

Before ABC, Alvear worked at WGBA, the NBC affiliate in Green Bay, and before that she was across the state in Eau Claire, WI at ABC affiliate WQOW.

Over at ABC, Alvear’s replacement at NewsOne has already been named. TVSpy reports former KTLA reporter Brandi Hitt will be the NewsOne correspondent in Los Angeles.

TV News Crews in Place for Chile Mine Rescue

TV News correspondents are descending on Chile’s Atacama desert as the rescue of 33 miners trapped since August 5 is now just days away.

“Today” show national correspondent Natalie Morales left New York for Chile on Friday and began reporting today for NBC News and The Weather Channel. NBC News Miami-based correspondent Kerry Sanders, (with Morales, right) who has been in Chile since Sept. 28, has been reporting for several NBCU channels, including MSNBC and CNBC.

ABC’s Jeffrey Kofman who was one of the first American news correspondents on the scene in August, remains on site. John Quinones is also there working on a report for “20/20″ to air this Friday and Diana Alvear is reporting for NewsOne and ABC News Radio.

For CBS News, Seth Doane is in place. Fox News Channel’s Steve Harrigan has been in-country since last Tuesday reporting for the cable news channel and CNN has a team of 14 people on the ground including Karl Penhaul who’s been on the ground since August 23 for both CNN/U.S. and CNNI. All-platform journalist Patrick Oppmann is also reporting for the network and Gary Tuchman will be on air soon as he just arrived this morning.

BBC World News America’s Matt Frei will anchor tonight’s show from the scene in Copiago and will remain until the miners are freed.
