About the Program
On February 16, 1990, KQED introduced a new weekly public affairs program, This Week in Northern California. The program's creators set out to offer insightful, thought-provoking roundtable discussions with local journalists about issues and events affecting Northern California.
Almost 20 years later on October 9, 2009, KQED unveiled a re-vamped This Week in Northern California and new website. Anchored in the news of the week and the Bay Area community, the program follows a magazine format and continues its strong commitment to news and public affairs, while broadening the range of topics to include the arts, culture, science, history, food and classic clips from the KQED archives.
Veteran journalist and host Belva Davis retired from the anchor chair on November 9, 2012 following an enormously successful career with This Week interviewing a variety of guests and leading discussions among local reporters who contribute their expertise and analysis.
The website invites the community to watch complete episodes and segments, view photo slideshows and video found only online, suggest stories and questions for guests, subscribe to the podcast, follow top news stories via Twitter, and comment.
This Week aims to serve Northern California with quality information about this place we call home.
