Roseborough joined WJBK in 2004 as the station’s managing editor. Since 2006, he has been assistant news director. He replaces Dana Hahn, who was recently named news director at WTTG, the Fox owned station in Washington, D.C.
“Kevin has played a major role in the success of FOX 2 news. His excellent editorial judgment and outstanding leadership made this decision an easy one,” WJBK vice president and general manager Mike Renda said in a statement.
Before joining WJBK, Roseborough worked at the Detroit Free Press, where he held a variety of positions including night city editor.
“There is nothing more important to me than the trust we have established with our viewers by providing them with relevant local news coverage at a time when Detroit faces some of the biggest challenges in its history,” Roseborough said.
