Longtime political reporter Richard Piatt will leave Salt Lake City NBC affiliate KSL to become communications director for Congresswoman-elect Mia Love. “I am thrilled to have someone with Richard’s experience on my staff,” Love said in a statement to KSL.
Piatt has worked at KSL for 16 years, and said he’s grateful to have been able to cover campaigns, elections, and political conventions. “I’m looking forward to being on the other side of the business of politics,” Piatt said. “I’m excited to apply the skills I learned in broadcasting in a different aspect.”
