NBC's Bureau Leaves Sacramento

Mike Luery has been the capitol correspondent in California appearing for NBC affiliates in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego for several years, and that came to an end on Friday April 24. Luery released an e-mail going around about his journey.

"The Sacramento Bureau is closing down this week. My photographer Mykie Vang and I want you to know how much we've enjoyed working with you over the past three years.

As a reporter, you couldn't ask for a better beat than to cover demonstrations at the Capitol, political campaigns for president and of course the "Governator" Arnold Schwarzenegger. We've also followed important issues like education, jobs, gay rights, the environment and government, with a critical look at whether our tax dollars are being spent wisely or unwisely. And along the way, we've had the opportunity to cover stories on wildfires at Lake Tahoe, wild bears in the woods and even some wayward whales in the Delta.

It's been a great ride and I feel honored and privileged to have been given the chance to cover these stories for you over the past three years. I am an eternal optimist and believe that when a door closes, a window will open up for a new opportunity. Mykie and I would like very much to stay in touch, so I am providing our contact information below."

No word yet where Mike and his photographer are headed to. The only major affiliate in California with a capitol correspondent is Nannette Miranda with ABC.
