Reeves will replace Stacey Woelfel, who was named director of the Jonathan Murray Documentary Journalism Center at the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism last week. Reeves takes over September 1.
“Randy’s years of experience working in KOMU’s unique environment, along with his excellent sense of news and interpersonal communication skills, make him the natural choice for the position,” said Dean Mills, dean of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, in a statement. “I am confident he will continue Stacey’s good work, not only in teaching the hundreds of students that pass through the doors of KOMU, but in providing top-notch news coverage for Mid-Missourians as well.”
Reeves, who is currently an executive producer, has worked at KOMU since 2003.
