Zach Behrens was KCET's Director of News, Region and State. He worked on digital and on-air news products that related to Southern California and beyond. He was also the Digital Executive Producer for "SoCal Connected."

Behrens previously ran LAist and has held positions at the city of Santa Clarita and California Institute of the Arts, where he earned a degree in music. He has won awards from the Los Angeles Press Club, L.A. Weekly, and the San Fernando Valley Business Journal.
