KBJR Duluth Ups Briggs LeSavage To News Director

Gray’s Television moves her up from assistant ND at its Minnesota NBC-CBS affiliate.

Gray Television’s NBC-CBS affiliate KBJR Duluth, Minn., has promoted Assistant News Director Briggs LeSavage to news director, effective immediately.


LeSavage is a Duluth native and has covered Twin Ports and area news for her entire career. She attended St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn., where she received her B.A. in communications and journalism. During her time at KBJR, she has been a morning anchor on Live Local CBS 3, assignment manager, and most recently, assistant news director.

Todd Wentworth, KBJR VP-general manager, said: “Our viewers are very fortunate to have some excellent journalists from outside of our area who call Duluth home. Our newsroom is just as fortunate to have a ‘home-grown’ leader in Briggs LeSavage. I am so proud to have promoted a person from within who has grown up here. In the end, our market and our viewers will benefit from Briggs’ journalistic instincts and dedication to the area … her hometown.”

LeSavage said: “It’s been a huge honor to tell stories in the community I grew up in. Now, I’m grateful to be able to continue that work in a new role; one that will allow me to be an even greater voice for my neighbors all across the Northland. I recognize the extreme value local news plays in today’s world and I am very much looking forward to taking that to new heights here at KBJR 6/CBS 3.”
