In Brief

March 08, 1996|By David Zurawik

WBAL-TV has hired Katherine Green, a news producer from Florida, to succeed David Roberts as news director, station management announced yesterday.

Ms. Green has been an executive producer at WFLA-TV, the NBC affiliate in Tampa-St. Petersburg, since 1993. She joins WBAL on March 25.

"I felt here's a station that's got some great things to offer and some real momentum," Ms Green, 35, said in a telephone interview.

"We are pleased to have Katherine joining our staff," said Phil Stolz, vice president and general manager of WBAL. "She has been an important part of WFLA-TV's climb to the No. 1 position in the nation's 15th largest market."

Before joining WFLA, Ms. Green worked as a news producer for one year each at WABC-TV and WNBC-TV in New York, and for four years as a senior producer at WTVJ-TV in Miami.

Mr. Roberts, who transformed WBAL's news operation from an also-ran into a ratings winner, left the station in January to become news director at WXIA-TV, the NBC affiliate in Atlanta.
