After seven years as news director for CBS affiliate WVTY-TV, Katie McManus-Faye will return to her native Illinois (and gain “executive” in her title).

Industry firm Rick Gevers reports McManus-Faye leaves the Dothan, Ala., affiliate to work for WICS/WICD in the Springfield-Champaign, Ill., market. Yes, it’s a duopoly.

No word yet on when her last day at WVTY will be.

McManus-Faye has quite the history with local southeastern U.S. stations, too.

She’s also worked as a news director in Jackson, Tenn., at ABC affiliate WBBJ-TV and an unnamed station in Sarasota, Fla.

McManus-Faye replaces Deana Reece at the duopoly.
