Tegna Names New Austin News Director

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KVUE, the Tegna station in Austin, Texas, has a new news director.

Christina Ginn replaces Tim Ryan, who moved to KUSA in Denver, Colo. late last year, as that station’s new director of content.

Ginn comes from NBC News and MSNBC in New York City where she’s been an executive producer for the last 10 years.


“Local news connects neighbors, government and commerce. It creates space to hear all sides. We go deeper on stories that matter,” Ginn said. “We engage and support our community. Local news is meaningful, urgent and dynamic. It holds the powerful to account while also telling great stories. I’m honored and humbled to continue the rich KVUE legacy and tradition of going deeper on stories that matter to Austin and excited by the opportunity to evolve and lead that storytelling for today’s changing consumer.”

Ginn has previous local news experience working in Orlando and Nashville.

She will relocate her family to Austin.
