“We look forward to Jerry’s arrival,” Jim McKernan, VP and GM of KWWL said in a statement. “Not only is he a skilled journalist, he’s an eastern Iowa native and has family here. He knows what is important to viewers, and complements the skills of Teal Jennings.”
This is Gallagher’s second stint at KWWL. He interned at the station while he was at the University of Northern Iowa.
He comes to KWWL from sister station WQOW in Eau Claire, WI, where he was assistant news director and anchor. He has also worked in Sioux City, IA. His first day is June 26.
