Ana Garcia returns to KNBC as investigative reporter

MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- Journalist Ana Garcia, after briefly

working on a congressional campaign and in city government, returns

to KNBC-TV Channel 4 as an investigative reporter.

She previously worked for the station for two years, co-anchoring

the station’s “Mid Day Report” and also as a general assignment

reporter with an emphasis on investigative and political stories

before leaving in April 2001.

During her first stint at KNBC, Garcia reported on unethical

campaign contributions to elected officials who sat on the board of

the Entertainment Industry Development Corp. Her exclusive story led

to an 18-month investigation by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s

office and resulted in the resignation of the head of the EIDC.

For the past year, Garcia served as the communications director

for Los Angeles City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo.
