Warren Stewart has been named News Director of EW Scripps’ Tulsa NBC subsidiary KJRH.
“In just a short amount of time, Warren has had a positive impact on our news team, helping 2 Works for You be more aggressive to make sure we stay true to our mission of working for our viewers,” said vp and GM Amy Calvert.
Stewart was the station’s interim news director last month, replacing him Mike McCardel. Before joining KJRH, he was the Ep at Scripps Cleveland Station WEWS. Prior to that, he was the assistant news director at WDSU in New Orleans and began his career as a producer at WOFL in Orlando, Florida.
“I was only in Tulsa for a short time and quickly learned how vibrant the community is and how dedicated this newsroom is to our audience,” added Warren. “We have an impressive team of journalists who are already doing a great job and I am ready to help them build on their efforts.
KJRH also appointed a new local sales manager.
“Stephanie Knight brings more than 17 years of experience in strategic planning, business development and managing customer accounts and revenue to her new role as Local Sales Manager, ”said the Scripps press release. “As a Tulsan for her entire life, most recently she worked as the regional digital sales manager for Tulsa World, the local newspaper, and was also a top performer at Cox Media, which won the prestigious Top Sales Manager Award twice.”
“I can’t wait to lead the 2 Works for You sales team and collaborate on the creative new initiatives that are always part of a dynamically changing business like 2Works for You,” said Knight. “It’s a competitive environment, but our sales team is committed to helping our customers get the best possible value on their messages.”
