"Mary Ann's departure leaves a void in the newsroom," said Wes Milbourn, KFOR-KAUT president and general manager. "But the team she assembled won't miss a beat during this leadership change. Mary Ann leaves a well-staffed and talented news team that knows what it takes to be No. 1."
Milbourn also welcomed Mark Martin as general sales manager, a post that opened when Milbourn was promoted to general manager, succeeding Jim Boyer upon his retirement at the end of the year. Martin comes from WVTV Milwaukee.
"Taking on Wes's role here at KFOR and KAUT is no small task," said Martin. "But he's right down the hall. Now he just needs to leave us alone and run the station. I've got this sales thing down."
Milbourn spoke of a "new energy in the building" with the personnel changes. "NewsChannel 4's market leading position in news, advertising and community involvement is about to get even stronger," he said.
