Belva Davis, longtime host of KQED’s This Week in Northern California, retired today. (You can watch her last show when it’s posted here.)

Just about the entire staff of KQED gathered this afternoon to say goodbye to Belva and watch this video tribute. Narrated by KRON anchor Pam Moore, it’s a great look back at Belva’s storied career and what she has meant both for Bay Area journalism and for KQED as an organization. With cameos by Willie Brown, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Maya Angelou and a host of Belva’s colleagues and friends.

So long Belva. And more to the point: thanks.

And here’s more on Belva from PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff, earlier this year.
