Kathy Reynolds was named news director at WPTV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, Florida, owned by E.W. Scripps.

Reynolds had been news content director at WUSA-TV, Washington, D.C.  She is replacing Nicole Hogensen, who moved to WSYX in Columbus, Ohio, as news director.

“Kathy’s extensive experience, commitment to journalism and community, and track record of success make her the ideal leader for WPTV’s news organization,” said Bill Siegel, VP and general manager of WPTV. “We’re excited for her to lead the largest and most resourced news team in The Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast, continuing WPTV’s tradition of essential journalism and impactful storytelling.” 

Before WUSA, Reynolds was a news director at WGME-TV/WPFO-TV, Portland, Maine; and WEYI-TV, Flint, Michigan. ■
