Journal Broadcasting Group has named George Severson news director at KMIR, the NBC-affiliate serving the Coachella Valley in California.

Severson joins KMIR from KOIN, the CBS-affiliate in Portland, where he was an executive producer. Prior to that, he spent 10 years as an executive producer at KTVX, the ABC-affiliate in Salt Lake City.

“I look forward to leading our dedicated news team in producing engaging and relevant newscasts and quality local programming,” Severson said in a statement.

Severson replaces Kate Glover, who left for KNSD in August. She is an executive producer on the morning show there.
