The Mormon Church-owned Deseret News is making some changes, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.
Con Psarras, who has been broadcast arm KSL’s news director for eight years, is becoming the station’s vice president of editorials and special projects. Tanya Vea, formerly the news director at KSL competitor KUTV, will become KSL’s executive vice president of news and cross-platform development.
Both Vea and Psarras told the Salt Lake Tribune that the restructuring is meant to streamline operations “while enhancing their news gathering.”
KSL.com is the number one local TV news site in the country, and #4th overall (that’s in competition with the likes of CNN.com, etc) so its streamlining up til now certainly hasn’t caused big problems.
Both managers will now report to president and chief executive of Deseret Management Corp Mark Willes.
