The job of TV News Director is not the most stable job in the industry, but KGAN in Cedar Rapids being unstable, might be a huge understatement.
The station seems to change ND's with the season. The latest hire is Becky Lutgen Gardner.
Gardner was the one time ND at KCRG. She was promoted the food chain at the Gazette company then let go in 2012.
She left TV News for a bit to work at a non-profit. Now Gardner is back in the game as she has accepted a position with KGAN as the news director.
She might not want to buy the green bananas when she does her grocery shopping, this is like the 5th News Director hire at KGAN in the last few years.
