Kelly Zuber, who has spent 34 years working in the news department at CBS affiliate WDBJ Roanoke, Va., is retiring from her job as news director on May 6. Zuber, 57, said that she is taking early retirement in part because the recent change in station ownership made it a good time to make a career move. Gray Television bought WDBJ earlier this year from Schurz Communications, which had owned the station since 1969.
She succeeds Dan Dennison as head of news at the Schurz Communications CBS affiliate in Roanoke-Lynchburg, Va. The station is merging its digital and news operations under one manager. Zuber will oversee a staff of about 50 news and online reporters.
