October 22, 2017


This week’s newsletter is similar to today’s Indianapolis Colts performance.


I jest, at least about the newsletter.

But we have had busier reports.

Today, just ONE newly named news director and NO new openings, leaving our count of open ND jobs at 22.

Perhaps it’s time for one of our occasional reminders that we welcome…in fact, encourage… your emailed news items.

There’s ONE paid ad for an Iowa EP opportunity, and we have several items in Names in the News, including an addition to the family of a Maine news director.

That’s all below.


Newly Named News Directors: 



KCSO-TV, Sacramento, CA…in our only news director move this week, STEVE MALAVE joins this Telemundo affiliate as its new news director. He’s been consulting there for the past few months. More on the hire and Steve’s background from Media Moves. Steve had been an EP for KXTV, the Tegna owned ABC affiliate in Sacramento. KCSO is owned by Serestar Communications.

Morning Executive Producer, KCCI-TV, Des Moines, IA:

KCCI-TV, the Hearst Television station in Des Moines, has an opening for a Morning Executive Producer who can oversee fast-paced, up-to-date newscasts. This is an excellent opportunity for a management-level producer at Iowa’s News Leader. Applicants should have a proven track record of success in producing television newscasts. Responsibilities include managing, coaching and motivating a team of producers, reporters, anchors and photographers. The executive producer is responsible for the overall content of morning newscasts, and managing all aspects of breaking news coverage. Candidates should be experienced professionals who can communicate clearly, make decisions under deadline pressure, and have a strong desire to win.

Come see why Forbes Magazine lists Des Moines as the best city for young professionals and why U.S, News and World Report ranks Des Moines as the #1 Best Affordable Place to Live in the U.S. This is a vibrant, growing community that is the center of the political universe every four years as Iowa kicks off the presidential selection process.
