News director Dave Busiek has named Scott Reister the new sports director at Hearst’s KCCI in Des Moines, IA
Reister replaces Andy Garman, who signed off last week to enter the wild world of PR.
Reister joined the station in 2009, coming from a sports director job at KNDU in Tri-Cities/Yakima, WA.
“Scott has done an outstanding job finding stories that go beyond the scoreboard,” noted Busiek. “With coverage stretching from baseball, to basketball, to wrestling Scott unpacks the motivation driving both Central Iowa’s athletes and the loved ones who make their dreams possible.”
