KPRC 2 changes management structure


KPRC 2 Houston

After the KPRC 2 2024 buyouts come more changes for the Houston Graham Media Group station in the form of a new management structure.

The assistant news director and executive producer positions are apparently being absorbed by the new title of Manager of Content and Coverage or MCC.

From the KPRC careers page:

"There will be 3 MCC positions available, working different shifts inside the newsroom. One of the shifts will involve early-morning hours to lead our morning news efforts. One will work later in the evening to lead our late news efforts; with the final a day shift leading evening products."

The chief photographer position will be replaced by the Operations Manager:

"As our Operations Manager, you will own the oversight of comprehensive newsgathering and production operations, including but not limited to, video gathering, editing, live broadcasts, and the upkeep of field shop equipment. Collaborating closely with the Managers of Coverage and Content and the Engineering Department, your mission will involve offering technical guidance, training, and leadership to our editorial, newsgathering, and production personnel. A significant part of your role will involve mentoring our news team in technological advancements, managing budgets, and ensuring flawless news production.

Lead the news operations staff — including photographers, editors, directors, and other assigned personnel — fostering a workplace culture rich in collaboration and innovation."

Other Houston television stations have altered news management jobs in the past. 

It's been a while since ABC13 KTRK had an assistant news director, and KHOU 11 has three newsroom leaders.
