Sacramento Valley residents may recall Goldfuss from her time in Chico and Redding with KNVN-TV. The Brown University graduate served in the station's Redding bureau, and later the main Chico newsroom, from August 2000 through June 2001.
All told, Goldfuss spent eight years as a reporter in California, Nevada and Virginia before jumping over to the policy side, with stints on Capitol Hill and, most recently, at the Center for American Progress.
