NBC’s flagship TV station in Los Angeles, KNBC, is getting a new executive to take over the day-to-day operations of its news department, reports TVNewsCheck.

The executive is Vickie Burns, who has been named KNBC’s vice president of news. "She will start Aug. 16 and report directly to KNBC President and GM Craig Robinson. She is replacing Steve Lange, who left in May," the article says.

Burns comes to KNBC from the Big Apple, where she was VP of content and audience development from NBC Media New York, according to the story.

The article also notes that "In 2008, [Burns] moved up to New York as VP of news and content and implemented NBC’s "content center" strategy, breaking down the walls between broadcast and digital media. She also helped launch NY Nonstop, a 24-hour news and lifestyle subchannel."
