Belva Davis will sign off KQED’s airwaves Friday

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Belva Davis, 80, who’ll be anchoring KQED’s election coverage tonight, officially retires with Friday’s upcoming “This Week in Northern California,” the public affairs show she’s hosted for years. She’s been a tradition on Bay Area television since coming aboard at KPIX (CBS 5) back in 1966 as the first black female TV reporter on the West Coast. Her guest Friday: poet and longtime friend Maya Angelou.

The Mercury News’ Chuck Barney says KQED is in no hurry to name Davis’s replacement at “This Week” and will use a series of guest hosts for at least the rest of the year.
