Sam Brock Set to Join KNTV in San Francisco

Sam Brock will join KNTV, the NBC owned station in the San Francisco Bay Area, next week. In his new role as a reporter, he will lead the station’s “Reality Check” franchise, analyzing politics, public policy and community issues for accuracy and honesty.

“We’re excited to have Sam join our team and bring a unique franchise to the Bay Area,” said vice president of news, Jonathan Mitchell. “We strive to bring our viewers a smart, sophisticated news product and Sam is the kind of journalist that will fit in perfectly with our brand.”

Brock comes to KNTV from WTVR.  He and his 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. co-anchor Stephanie Rochon, were recently victims of an anchor reshuffling at the Richmond, Virginia CBS affiliate.  The station brought in Julie Bragg from cross-town rival WWBT and moved anchor Lorenzo Hall from weekends.
