Carrie Hofmann, most recently the assistant news director at WCNC in Charlotte, N.C., has been named News Director at KSHB 41 Action News, according to an announcement today by station Vice President & General Manager Brian Bracco.
Before joining WCNC, a Belo-owned NBC affiliate, she was an assistant news director at KMGH in Denver. She has worked in newsrooms as an Executive Producer, Producer, and Assignment Editor and covered major events such as the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and 2012, as well as wildfires in Colorado.
“Carrie has the vision and leadership skills we believe will help 41 Action News move forward,” says Bracco.
