ROCKLIN - Longtime Sacramento news reporter Rob McAllister, who became well known for his reporting at both KFBK 1530 radio and KOVR CBS 13 television in Sacramento, has accepted a position at Halldin Public Relations

As a Vice President with Halldin PR, McAllister will focus on creating strategic communications for clients, using both traditional and social media.

"We are excited to welcome Rob to our team," said Bill Halldin, Founder and President of Halldin Public Relations. "Rob has been a well-known and well-respected journalist in our community and will bring strong skills to assist our clients and expand our services."

McAllister gained nationwide attention after breaking details of a secret deal between the Sacramento Kings' owners and Anaheim leaders to relocate the NBA franchise to Orange County in January 2011.

McAllister began his broadcast career with the ESPN affiliate, KMVI, in Hawaii.
