Al Naipo moving on from Fox 11

al-naipo-fox11.jpegIt's transition time at some of the local TV stations, if the drumbeats I'm hearing are accurate. One transition that's for sure is that of Al Naipo, the Orange County bureau chief for Fox 11. His Twitter profile line: "I cover all of Southern California. I go where the news is, anyplace, anytime." His farewell note went out to the Bundy Drive newsroom tonight. You might even call it classy.

Subject: Aloha!

Hello Friends,

After nearly 20 years here at KTTV, I'll be leaving next month to pursue that next step in my career. At this point, I've yet to identify that specific path.

While this may come as a surprise, we all realize such that such realities are a nature of this business.

I'm very proud of what we were able to accomplish over the years. Much of that is attributed to a fine group of professionals, who give their all everyday, sometimes in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, to provide our viewers with the information they truly need to know in a manner befitting a journalist.

My last day will be prior to March 11th. I should have a specific date in a few days.

I thank you for your dedication, friendship and support.

--Al Naipo
