By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WDIV, the NBC affiliate in Detroit, has promoted its dayside executive producer to assistant news director.

Jennifer Wallace will still manager producers, writers and talent as well as manage daily news content in addition to special coverage of major news events.

“Jen has done a tremendous job strengthening our news content and being a strong leader for every person who walks into our newsroom,” said News Director Kim Voet. “She is whip smart and has that enviable blend of a likable personality and amazingly strong news judgment.”

Wallace joined the station in 1997 and worked her way up the newsroom ladder, from producer to executive producer.
