It’s a homecoming of sorts for the new General Manager at WKBW-TV.
The E.W. Scripps Company has appointed the new General Manager for WKBW-TV and he is a native of Western New York.
Marc Jaromin serves as Vice President and General Manager for the ABC affiliate. He started in the role last week and it’s a return to the station for him because he worked at WKBW-TV when it was owned by Granite Broadcasting from 1997 to 2001.
Jaromin’s most recent role was serving as President and CEO of Roundtable Management Services, a media consulting firm that was based in Ohio. before that, he worked at Buckeye Broadband as the Director of Media Operations, and in the early 2000s, served as General Manager of WROC-TV in Rochester, New York. Jaromin is a graduate of SUNY Oswego and attended Canisus College.
He takes over for former Vice President and General Manager Mike Nurse, who was let go from the station in August, but has since landed at WKEF-WRGT in Dayton, Ohio.
Meteorologist Jennifer Stanonis has left WGRZ-TV to spend more time with her family and young children.
Stanonis joined the NBC affiliate in June of 2012 while pursuing her bachelor’s degree in meteorology from the SUNY College at Brockport. She moved into a full-time role in 2013 and doubled as a reporter focusing on scientific and environmental stories.
From 2005 to 2012, Stanonis worked at WKBW-TV as a weekend meteorologist and weekday reporter. Before moving to Western New York, she worked in Casper, Wyoming and in San Francisco.
Stanonis is an active member in the Buffalo community and serves on the United Way of Buffalo’s Board of Directors. She’s also a former board member of the Buffalo Broadcasters Association.
She also authored a book titled Willy and Lilly’s Adventures with Weather and will be available starting in March 2020 (on the spring equinox)!
A familiar face has returned to Western New York from across the pond. Ali Ingersoll, formerly of WIVB-TV, has joined Inevstigative Post as a reporter.
Ingersoll earned a master’s degree from Cardiff University in computational and data journalism during her time away from the States.
In the article posted on the Investigative Post’s website, Ingersoll said, “This is an opportunity to make an impact and cover issues which are important to people in a city I consider my second home.”
She’s a Penn State graduate and went on to work in Wausau, Wisconsin and Altoona, Pennsylvania before coming to Western New York.
