Greg Berry Leaving ND Post at KIMT to Assume Assistant Role at WIAT

Greg Berry is leaving his news director post at KIMT, a CBS-affiliate serving northern Iowa and southern Minnesota, to become assistant news director at WIAT in Birmingham, AL.

Both KIMT and WIAT, also a CBS-affiliate, are owned by New Vision Television and Berry will transition to his new position in the spring. The move is a jump from market 153 to 40.

Berry started at KIMT in 2000 and was promoted to news director in 2008.  Before leading the newsroom, he served as the station’s sports director.

Last spring, KIMT was recognized by the Iowa Broadcast News Association for having the Best Small Market Newscast.

“This is a promotion within the company and a very good opportunity for Greg. We’re proud of him,” said Steve Martinson, KIMT’s general manager.
