“Throughout her career, and especially during her most recent tenure at KXRM-TV and KXTU-TV, Donna has grown revenue, expanded content, and developed effective cross-platform marketing solutions for advertisers and community partners. Her lengthy track record of success over 30 years will serve her well in her new leadership role, and we’re looking forward to celebrating the successes to come under her leadership of the talented staff in Colorado Springs.”

This is D’Amico’s second stretch with KXRM and KXTU. From 2003 to 2005 she served as general sales manager for the stations. She has also held posts at stations in Denver, Cleveland and Santa Fe after starting her broadcast career as an account executive with WJW-TV, Cleveland, in 1992.

“I am grateful to Nexstar for giving me the opportunity to expand my role and lead the company’s Colorado Springs media operations, building upon the strong legacy of service to the community established by KXRM-TV, KXTU-TV, and,” D’Amico said. “I look forward to continuing to work with our talented staff, including our strong local news team and an exceptional sales team that is well-versed in creating unique cross-platform solutions for our advertising and marketing clients.
