Lloyd LaCuesta Retiring After 35 Years at KTVU

Lloyd LaCuesta, KTVU‘s South Bay bureau chief, has announced his retirement from the San Francisco Fox-affiliate.

“I have spent half of my life at KTVU, which makes it all the more difficult to say goodbye,” LaCuesta said in a statement. “But it is time … I need to slow down and truly enjoy life.”

LaCuesta, who has worked at KTVU since 1976, will retire on June 15.

“Lloyd’s reporting has been so strong and so consistent for KTVU for years. He’s been the iron man of our South Bay coverage,” vice president and general manager Tom Raponi said in a statement. “While we are excited for Lloyd in his decision to make this move, his presence on KTVU — in particular the ten o’clock news — will be greatly missed.”

LaCuesta has won six Emmy Awards and several AP “Best of the West” awards, according to KTVU.
