Mike Cunningham is joining the KWWL staff as Marketing Director effective October 15, 2018.
Cunningham has most recently served as Creative Services Director and Executive Producer for television stations WANT/WLMT/WJKT in Memphis, Tennessee. Cunningham has also worked as Promotions Director and Executive Producer for KCWI-TV/KDMI-TV in Des Moines, Iowa. Prior to that he spent 17 years as Creative Services Director for top ranked KCCI-TV, also in Des Moines.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Iowa and KWWL. Having worked there very early in my career, it’s exciting to come full circle,” said Cunningham. “I’m sure a lot has changed, especially with the renovation of their historic downtown building into a state-of-the-art facility. But one thing that hasn’t changed is KWWL’s stellar reputation as a market leader with respected journalism. I’m looking forward to continuing and building on that tradition.”
“We’re very happy to have Mike join our staff and leverage his years of experience on behalf of KWWL. His track record in the industry is strong and his extensive history in Iowa is valuable” said KWWL’s Vice President and General Manager Jim McKernan.
