KSTP (Minneapolis) has bumped up Assistant News Director Anne Wittenborg to the News Director chair.
She replaces previous news director Lindsay Radford, who as FTVLive told you was named ND at KMGH in Denver back in March.
"I grew up watching Channel 5 and admired the station’s commitment to news," Wittenborg said in a statement. "We have a strong team of journalists who have a passion for telling stories that really matter. I am grateful for their support and I am incredibly excited to lead this team."
Wittenborg joined KSTP in 2000, producing morning and evening newscasts, until 2005. She returned to serve as Executive Producer in 2008, and was promoted to Assistant News Director in 2013.
"While we identified a number of excellent, worthy candidates I also knew that we had a strong leader in our own building," Robert Hubbard, president and general manager of Hubbard Broadcasting, said in a statement. "I am confident that Anne has the leadership skills and dedication to our news product to take our team to the next level."
