WCCO-TV Rounds Out News Team

WCCO-TV Minneapolis has named two new news staffers to round out the team assembled by news director Jeff Kiernan, who joined the station in October.

John Daenzer, 10 p.m. executive producer at the station, has been upped to assistant news director. He replaces Bob Sabo, who left the station to join cross-town KSTP-TV.

Dana Benson, news director at Fox affiliate KMSP-TV, also Minneapolis, replaces Daenzer. He is no stranger to the station, having worked there from 1980 until 1991.

Contributing editor John Eggerton has been an editor and/or writer on media regulation, legislation and policy for over four decades, including covering the FCC, FTC, Congress, the major media trade associations, and the federal courts. In addition to Multichannel News and Broadcasting + Cable, his work has appeared in Radio World, TV Technology, TV Fax, This Week in Consumer Electronics, Variety and the Encyclopedia Britannica.
