John Mann will join KWQC, Davenport’s NBC affiliate, as the general sales manager.
“John has a consistent track record of helping stations turn in exceptional sales performances and I am excited to have him join us,” said KWQC vice president and general manager Ken Freedman. “He will be a major asset for KWQC and Young Broadcasting here in the Quad Cities, translating his wealth of experience to this dynamic market and building strong relationships throughout these communities.”
Mann, who has held a number of senior-level positions at stations around the country, joins KWQC from KPTM-KXVO in Omaha, NE.
