KTVB-KTFT has promoted Kate Morris to president and general manager.
For the past seven years she has been the station’s executive news director.
“Kate is a proven leader with a demonstrated ability to develop quality content across numerous platforms. Her focus on community journalism, investigative reporting and commitment to the people of Idaho are significant assets that will support KTVB’s future growth,” said Lynn Beall, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Tegna.
Over the years at KTVB, Morris grew audiences in Boise, Idaho. She expanded the station’s digital presence across all platforms and grew the station’s main Facebook page into the most popular in the state.
Morris will replace Doug Armstrong who retires after two decades at the station in March.
