“I grew up watching Channel 5 and admired the station’s commitment to news,” said Wittenborg. “We have a strong team of journalists who have a passion for telling stories that really matter. I am grateful for their support and I am incredibly excited to lead this team.”
Wittenborg replaces Lindsay Radford, who left in March to be news director of KMGH in Denver. Between 2000 and 2005, she worked as producer at KSTP. She came back in 2008 and was promoted to assistant new director in 2013.
