Carolyn Mungo has been named executive news director at WFAA, the ABC-affiliate in Dallas. She will begin later this month.

Mungo joins WFAA from KRIV, the Fox O&O in Houston, where she was the assistant news director.

“The demands of a major market newsroom take a special set of skills,” Mungo said in a statement. “I am well aware of the challenges because I have lived them.”

Mungo replaces Michael Valentine, who left his post at WFAA earlier this month to become vice president of content for the station’s parent company, Belo.
