Ed Piette, the new general manager at WCCO-TV Minneapolis, has tapped Jeff Kiernan as news
director for the Viacom Inc./CBS station.
Kiernan, who has been with WTMJ-TV Milwaukee for the past eight years,
replaces Maria Reitan.
The move is just the latest from Piette, who came over to the station from
crosstown KSTP-TV a couple months ago.
Among his new hires was station manager Trey Fabacher, whom he brought over
"Jeff Kiernan first and foremost is a quality individual with great news
instincts who is a proven winner in large-market television," Piette said.
