Kate Morris Named Executive News Director at KTVB

KTVB announced that executive news producer Kate Morris has been promoted to the executive news director position recently vacated by Jim Gilchriest at the Boise NBC affiliate.

Morris has been KTVB’s executive news producer since 2008, overseeing the station’s coverage of breaking news and special broadcasts. In her new position, she will be responsible for daily station management and coordination of reporters, staffers and producers.

Morris, an Idaho native, got her start as a producer KSAZ in Phoenix. She has won three Edward R. Murrow awards in her tenure at KTVB.

Gilchriest left KTVB this month to join LIN media duopoly WAVY-WVBT as news director.
