“I’ve worked with George over the years and I’m very excited to have someone with his experience be part of this management team,” said Sherrie Brown, KMBC’s news director, in making the announcement.
The move represents another shift within the Hearst organization for Matz, who has been a part of the broadcasting group for over twelve years. Before joining WMTW, Matz served as assistant news director and operations manager for Milwaukee’s WISN.
“KMBC is one of the most well respected stations in the country,” Matz said. “I’m looking forward to working with such a talented news team.”
Matz’s first day with KMBC-KCWE is scheduled for May 2nd.
