Andrea Ospina is trading the humidity of Houston for the bustle of Burbank.
Liberman Broadcasting’s Estrella TV network has lured Ospina, assistant news director at KTMD in Houston, to serve as vice president of local news at KRCA in Los Angeles, Estrella’s flagship station.
Ospina is a 15-year veteran journalist who served as news director for Telemundo Arizona before moving to Texas.
In her new role, Ospina will be responsible for the strategic planning and direction of all local news at KRCA.
With the appointment, Ospina becomes one of 10 Hispanic women leading a newsroom in the top 20 DMAs in the U.S., according to NewsBlues.com’s most recent “News Directors By Market” report.
Commenting on Ospina’s arrival at KRCA, Liberman CEO Lenard Liberman said: “We take great pride in the undeniable track record we hold in the cultural and gender diversity of our workforce, especially in executive level positions. Andrea is a true professional with a great track record in two important markets, Phoenix and Houston. I have no doubt she will extend that winning record to KRCA in Los Angeles.”
