WDIV Promotes Kim Voet to News Director

Kim Voet has been named news director at Detroit’s WDIV.

Voet has worked her way up the ranks of WDIV’s newsroom for the past 14 years. After working as a news producer, executive producer, and senior executive producer, Voet was appointed assistant news director of the NBC-affiliate at the end of 2009.

“Throughout her many years at Local 4, Kim has had a hand in every key initiative in our newsroom,” said Marla Drutz, WDIV’s vice president and general manager, in announcing the move.  “She has consistently demonstrated a passion for being the best in breaking news coverage, and has a great understanding of what is truly important to our community.”

The move comes after Deborah Collura, who spent several years as news director of Post Newsweek-owned WDIV, was promoted to vice president-managing director of news for Post Newsweek stations.
