Former Photographer Named WDAZ News Director

Chris Regimbal, who has worked his way up the ranks of WDAZ for the past 19 years, has been named news director of the Grand Forks ABC-affiliate.

Regimbal started with the station as a sports photographer, eventually becoming chief photographer. Most recently, he has served as assignment editor.

“Chris long has shown a solid grasp of local issues and a very keen instinct for finding not-always-obvious stories that matter to local people,” Mike Brue, who worked as WDAZ’s news director from 1996 to 2004, told the Grand Forks Herald. “He’s earned the opportunity to be ‘DAZ’s news director.”

Regimbal succeeds Cassie Walder, who left the station in March.
