Happy Retirement, Ray Gonzales!

Today in Council Chambers we honored journalist Ray Gonzales, who recently retired after serving as KTLA Director of Community Affairs for more than 30 years. Gonzales was also the Executive Producer and host of KTLA’s Pacesetters weekend public affairs program.

An active community leader, Gonzales coordinated KTLA Charities for the Robert R. McCormick Tribune Foundation and oversaw the foundation’s distribution of charitable funds to organizations in Southern California. He also served on numerous boards, including the advisory board of the City of Los Angeles’s own LA’s BEST after-school program.

Although Ray has retired from KTLA, we know he'll never retire from Los Angeles and we look forward to his continued involvement in our community. Congratulations, Ray!
