Randy McIlwain, a stalwart and standout general assignment reporter for the past 11-and-a-half years at Fort Worth-based NBC5, is heading West to join NBC-owned KNBC-TV in Los Angeles.

He’ll be a member of the station’s I-Team, specializing in consumer reporting.

McIlwain joined NBC5 in October 2003 after a six-year stint at KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City. Besides being one of the D-FW market’s most capable street reporters, oftentimes on the night side, he has filled in as a sports anchor at NBC5. His TV career began in 1990 as a photographer for WSEE-TV in Erie, PA before McIlwain became a reporter six months later.

McIlwain tweeted the news of his new job Tuesday and immediately was deluged with well-wishes. In response to a Twitter query from unclebarky.com, he said his last day at NBC5 will be on June 20th and he’ll start at KNBC on July 7th. His NBC5 colleagues were informed in-house of the move on Tuesday.
