Cox executed a significant shuffle this week among its news executive ranks.
Misti Turnbull is joining the corporate staff at Cox Media, and thus leaving her job as news director of the company’s Atlanta station, WSB.
She’s a 20 year veteran of WSB, having started there as a producer in 1999, then rising through the ranks before being named news director in 2015.
She’s also worked in Colorado Springs, Norfolk, and Denver.
Turnbull’s replacement as news director at WSB is Suzanne Nadel, currently the ND for Cox’s Pittsburgh station, WPXI.
It’s a return to WSB for Suzanne, who served as an EP there before being promoted to ND for Cox’s Tulsa station, KOKI in 2013.
She moved to WPXI in 2016.
Earlier she worked in Tampa, Orlando, Ft. Myers and Johnson City, TN.
Nadel is being replaced at WPXI by Managing Editor Scott Trabandt.
He’s been the ME here in the Burgh since 2016.
He previously worked as a producer and EP for WRC in Washington, and also worked in Charlotte (at Cox’s WSOC) and in Myrtle Beach, SC.
