On Monday, Kelly Duffy was named the news director of KOAA News 5. She begins Dec. 2.
An Emmy Award winner for journalism, Duffy comes from KSBW, the No. 1 NBC affliate in Monteray-Salinas, Calif., where she was assistant news director.
"In addition to her other strengths, Kelly has been recognized for excellence in delivering breaking news on multiple platforms in life threatening situations," said Evan Pappas, the station's president and general manager. "With the unprecedented string of natural disasters and news stories with national significance here in recent years, it's that type of experience in the news trenches we'll rely upon."
Current News Director David Randall has moved into a new position as KOAA director of multi media.
