Laura Diaz Departs KCBS, Rick Garcia Tapped to Replace Her at 6 p.m.

Laura Diaz is leaving KCBS after nine years and the station announced on Friday that Rick Garcia, currently the co-anchor of KCAL’s 8 and 10 p.m. newscasts, will replace her at the 6 p.m.

“It has been an amazing run at CBS 2, and I’ll miss the many colleagues who have become close friends,” Diaz said in a statement.  She’s reportedly leaving KCBS to pursue a producing career.

A Los Angeles native, Garcia joined KCAL in 2009 after 22 years with KTTV.  He will continue to co-anchor KCAL’s 8 and 10 p.m. newscasts in addition to his new role as 6 p.m. anchor for KCBS.

“As he approaches his 25th anniversary on Los Angeles television next year, it is clear that Rick Garcia has played a major role in the growth and success of KCAL’s primetime newscasts,” said Steve Mauldin, president and general manager of KCBS and KCAL, in announcing the move.  “We are extremely pleased to recognize Rick’s importance to our stations and the communities we serve by expanding his responsibilities to include anchoring CBS 2’s 6 p.m. newscast.”
