Hedrick was news director at KWQC, Gray’s NBC affiliate station in Davenport, Iowa. She succeeds Bryce Caldwell who is now GM at WHNS Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, one of several Gray GMs who was moved to run stations acquired by Gray from Meredith.

“As our news director at KWQC for the past four years, Stephanie has proven herself to be an outstanding leader,” Gray senior VP Mike King said. “Under her leadership, KWQC has continued to grow market share and cemented its ‘Everywhere’ brand in the minds of the Quad Cities viewers. She is an energetic, strategic thinking team builder who will join an already high performing team in Rochester.”

Hedrick began her TV career as a reporter/producer at Gray’s KWTX in Waco, Texas. She became news director for Gray’s stations in Lincoln, Nebraska, before moving to Davenport in 2017. ■
