Chris Huston Named KTAL News Director

Nexstar Broadcasting Group announced today that Chris Huston had been chosen to lead the newsroom at KTAL, the company’s NBC-affiliate in Shreveport, LA.

“Chris brings proven news management experience and a wealth of knowledge to KTAL,” said Mark Cummings, KTAL’s vice president and general manager. “I  am very excited he is joining our team.”

Huston is set to become KTAL’s news director next month. He comes to KTAL, which serves Shreveport in addition to the Texarkana region along the Texas-Arkansas border, from KIDK in Idaho Falls, where he also served as news director.

“I think everyone in the ArkLaTex recognizes that NBC 6 has made tremendous strides in the last few years,” said Huston. “I’m honored that the management team here felt that I could play a role in moving the station to even greater success.  I’m excited to hit the ground running.”
