The Globe Gazette in Mason City, Ia., reports current KIMT news director Greg Berry has taken a job at WIAT, the CBS affiliate in Birmingham. Berry will be the assistant news director there.

From the article:

“This is a promotion within the company and a very good opportunity for Greg. We’re proud of him,” said Steve Martinson, general manager at KIMT.

KIMT is 153rd in market size in the country. The Birmingham station is 40th.

The author of that article is right. Heck of a jump. Both stations are owned by the same company as well.

Berry starts his new job in Alabama sometime in late March-early April.
