KUSA News Director Patti Dennis Gets Expanded Role with Gannett

dennis_kusa_croppedPatti Dennis, VP of news at Denver NBC affiliate KUSA, has been given a role in choosing who works for the station’s parent company Gannett.

“In her new role, Patti will work directly with our stations to help recruit both on and off air candidates,” Rob Mennie, Gannett Broadcasting’s SVP of news, said in an email sent to staffers. “She will create an online database of potential employees and work with a small team of people in order to find the best and brightest for our properties.”

Mennie added Dennis will be less involved in day to day operations of KUSA but will keep her title.

Dennis told The Denver Post via email, “I am working on the new assignment as well as working with the newsroom in Denver for a while.”
