Denver ABC station KMGH has named Lindsay Radford news director, filling a seven-month vacancy at the station.
Radford spent the last seven years as news director at KSTP/KSTC in Minneapolis- St. Paul.
Radford talked to The Denver Post about the similarities between the two markets:
“We own the investigative brand in the Twin Cities,” Radford said by phone, speaking of her current station. She has regularly tracked the Denver market since leaving here. “The markets are very similar. You have highly educated people, a public that really cares about news and craves good reporting.” In terms of the competition, “my goal is to challenge everybody in the market.” She plans to hire additional staff, specifically reporters.
Radford starts her news position on April 30.
