"I'm very pleased to have Kathi on our team," says KPBS General Manager Doug Myrland. Her broadcast experience coupled with her on-going support and involvement with KPBS made her the perfect choice."

And Diamant says she is looking forward to her new job at KPBS. "Having worked in commercial television, I deeply appreciate the vital role KPBS plays in providing essential programming that keeps San Diego culturally alive and our viewers connected and well-informed," says Diamant.

In addition to her work in broadcasting, Diamant has written extensively for newspapers and magazines. Shes also an author, playwright, actor, community activist and adjunct professor at SDSU. She recently earned the Theodor Geisel Award ("The Best of the Best") from the San Diego Book Awards Association for her biography, Kafkas Last Love: The Mystery of Dora Diamant.
