The veteran television journalist joins Tegna’s Seattle duopoly to lead the news team.
Promotion veteran Jay Yovanovich joins the Tegna NBC affiliate in Seattle from WRAL Raleigh, N.C.
While Tegna’s Seattle TV properties downsized with the move to a new operations center, they upsized in technology, collaboration and growth potential. The new digs turn out more than 18 hours of news a day with state-of-the-art equipment including Sony cameras, automation, production switchers and news automation that controls gear from Evertz, Logitek, Grass Valley, Abekas and Ross Video.
Tegna promotes her from director of market development to lead sales at its three Seattle properties: KING, KONG and NWCN.
Jim Rose is promoted at KING, KONG and NWCN, while Kristie Gonzales takes over at KVUE.
After more than 63 years at 333 Dexter Ave N., the Gannett NBC afiliate will begin building its future home in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood. The new location is kitty corner from Safeco Field. Once the build-out is complete, KING, independent KONG and Northwest Cable News will occupy the first three floors of the North Building.
