Keith McMahan Succeeds the Late Greg Koelfgen as KABB News Director

Keith McMahan has been promoted to news director of San Antonio’s KABB.

McMahan has spent his entire broadcast career in San Antonio, starting out as a sports producer for ABC-affiliate KSAT before moving on to KMOL (now WOAI, an NBC-affiliate) where he worked as executive sports producer. After a brief time working in PR, McMahan joined KABB as assistant news director, working under the late Greg Koelfgen.

Koelfgen passed away in January at the age of 53.

“Greg was the consummate pro, and his untimely death was a personal blow to all of us.  I look back [and] I still don’t know how we as a newsroom made it through this time,”  McMahan told TVSpy via email. “I feel blessed to have the opportunity to build on Greg’s legacy here.”
