Bernice Kearney Named KSAT News Director
Post-Newsweek-owned ABC affiliate KSAT San Antonio, Texas (DMA 36), has promoted Bernice Kearney, currently assistant news director, to news director, effective immediately.
She succeeds Jim Boyle who is retiring after 30 years at the station.
Kearney joined KSAT as a news producer, moving up to executive producer and then assistant news director.
“We will greatly miss Jim’s leadership, his vision for KSAT12 and San Antonio, and his unbridled connection to this community,” VP-GM Phil Lane said. “It is with a very heavy heart that we accept his retirement and we know that he will forever be connected to the people he mentored and led for the past 30 years.”
