KSDK Names News Director

By Kevin Eck 

Karin Movesian has been named news director of St. Louis NBC affiliate KSDK.

Movesian comes to KSDK from KTNV in Las Vegas where she’s been news director since 2007. She replaces Mike Shipley who said in October, he was leaving the station.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled about the opportunity to join KSDK,” said Movesian. “NewsChannel 5 is a world-class team known for delivering the highest quality news coverage and investigative, advocacy-driven journalism. Returning home to St. Louis and leading this outstanding news team is a real opportunity.”

Before working at KTNV, Movesian was assistant news director at KENS in San Antonio. She’s also worked at WCCO in Minneapolis, WJBK in Detroit, WLS in Chicago and as a producer at KMOV In St. Louis.
