Before coming to Dallas, Roark was the ND at WFOR in Miami.

Here is the internal memo that was sent to the staff and obtained by FTVLive:

Dear KOIN 6 team,

I am pleased to announce that Adrienne Roark has been named the station's new President and General Manager, effectiveJune 23, 2014. A press release announcing her appointment will go out Monday morning.
