Lisa Polster has been the interim news director since Scott Levy left in August of 2016 to become a news director in Kansas City. She was previously the news director at WKBW, the cross-town rival she left two years ago to become an executive news producer of the morning program Wake Up! under Levy.
Sources say that WKBW’s News Director Lisa Polster, the ND at Scripp’s newly acquired ABC affiliate, just inked a deal to become the morning executive producer at Media General’s CBS affil WIVB.
ABC affiliate WKBW Buffalo, N.Y., has promoted Lisa Polster from assistant news director to replace ND Polly Van Doren, who’s leaving for the same job at WKEF-WRGT Dayton, Ohio
