Belva Davis announces retirement

Belva Davis, the first black female TV journalist on the West Coast and a Bay Area TV fixture for almost half a century, has announced that she will retire in November. She has been host of KQED's "This Week in Northern California" for 19 years and her last program will air Nov. 9, according to Chuck Barney of the Contra Costa Times. She plans to lead KQED's coverage of the fall election before stepping down. She previously worked at KPIX and KRON. Davis has won eight local Emmys. Last year she published a memoir, "Never in My Wildest Dreams, a Black Woman's Life in Journalism."
