Meredith Corp. said it promoted Corey Hanson to VP and general manager for its duopoly in Portland, Oregon, which consists of KPTV and KPDX-TV, effective Aug. 2.
Hanson is returning to the stations. She was station manager there before becoming VP and general manager at WALA-TV, Meredith’s station in Mobile, Alabama.
Hanson will succeed Adrienne Roark, who was named president at the CBS station group.
“Corey’s leadership has been invaluable to Meredith since she first joined KPTV/KPDX in 2004 and through her time at WALA. She has a proven record of ratings success and a passion for innovative non-traditional projects that generate revenue, community involvement, and team building,” said Meredith Local Media Group President Patrick McCreery. “Corey led the WALA team through COVID-19, one of the most challenging periods in our industry’s and country’s history. I am confident that her experience and results-driven leadership will make a lasting impact on the KPTV/KPDX team and the community.”
Hanson joined Meredith in 2004. She began her career as a news producer at KOIN-TV, Portland.
“I am so grateful to the team at WALA Fox 10 for their perseverance, hard work, and genuine care for their community and one another during the past year. I am very proud of this team and its many accomplishments,” said Hanson. “I am equally grateful to return to Portland and continue to build on the Fox12 team’s success. I couldn’t be more thrilled to get started.”
