killianDenise Killian has been named news director for LIN Media’s Wichita NBC affiliate KSNW, according to Rick Gevers.

Killian comes to KSNW from Dallas CW affiliate KDAF where she was the assistant news director.

Before working at KDAF, she was the news director at KWQC in the Quad Cities. She worked in Dallas earlier in her career as well as working in Nashville, TN, Corpus Christi and Temple, TX.

Gevers reports Killian fills the role vacated by Jason Kravarik who left the station to be the assistant news director at KOIN in Portland, OR, in January 2012.

KSNW added a new general manager in August. LIN Media completed its purchase of KSNW from New Vision last October.
