Allison McGinley: “This April I celebrate 25 years at WKMG-TV in Orlando. I traveled a rare path in television news from intern to news director at the same television station. As my anniversary approaches, I have found myself reminiscing, and also contemplating the key elements that carried me to where I am today.”
Allison McGinley, who has worked at the Graham Media CBS affiliate in Orlando, Fla., for 21 years, has been named news director. She had been acting news director since Steve Hyvonen resigned July 21.
