CROSSING THE STREET IN COLUMBUS, GA

Veteran newsman Gene Kirkconnell is the new ND for Nexstar owned WRBL in Columbus, GA.

He need not move, as he’s been the ND for cross town WLTZ for the past 2 1/2 years.

This detailed memo from GM DAVID HART details Gene’s background, including his past four ND jobs, a stint as a GM in Birmingham, and their past history together.

At WRBL, he replaces Kay Norred who was promoted to ND for Nexstar’s WFXR in Roanoke last June.
