KGET News Director John Pilios Retires

John Pilios has retired after more than a decade as news director at Bakersfield NBC affiliate KGET.

Pilios got his start in TV news in 1987 after working in radio. He was hired as news director of KCOY in Santa Maria in 1990 and came to KGET in 1999 as assistant news director.

The station said goodbye to Pilios with a feature about his life, his career and his reputation of being a fair manager who always pushed his staff to do better. “I tried to treat everyone fairly,” Pilios told KGET. “I don’t think as a good manager you treat everybody the same because that’s not what being a manager is about. You treat everyone fairly. Everyone has a different ‘go’ button. Some need some yelling, others a softer touch.” You can watch the station’s story about Pilios after the jump. Read more

Longtime Anchor Robin Mangarin Leaving KGET

KGET anchor and executive producer Robin Mangarin, who has been a fixture at the Bakersfield NBC-affiliate for the past 15 years, is leaving TV to begin a career in community service.

“Leaving my KGET family was a very difficult decision but I do believe, from the bottom of my heart, that this is the right decision for me and my family,” Mangarin said.  “This move enables me to pursue a path I have thought about for a long time.”

For much of her 15 years with KGET, Mangarin has anchored the station’s evening newscasts alongside her husband Jim Scott. He will remain as anchor of the 5, 6, and 11 p.m. newscasts.

“Robin’s community service and commitment to a large number of local non-profit groups has been a huge part of KGET’s fiber over the past 15 years,” said KGET news director John Pilios.  “Her tireless work in that area is a very significant part of the station’s overall success.”
