Hearst Television is expanding its corporate news leadership team with the announcement of three executive promotions.

Barbara Maushard, who since 2008 has served as a vice president, News, based at Hearst’s New York headquarters, and who since 2013 has held oversight of the company’s news efforts, has been promoted to senior vice president, News. She will continue to set strategy for Hearst Television’s 29 news operations and will have management oversight of the expanded corporate-level news team.

Andrew Vrees, news director of Hearst’s WCVB-TV, Boston’s news leader, has been promoted to vice president, News. He will continue to be based in Boston while providing guidance to newly assigned stations. A successor to Vrees as WCVB news director will be announced at a future date.

Lori Waldon, news director at Sacramento, Calif.’s TV news leader KCRA-TV and its sister station KQCA-TV, has been named regional director of News. She maintains her responsibility as KCRA/KQCA news director and adds oversight of the news operations of Hearst’s KOAT-TV in Albuquerque/Santa Fe, N.M., and KSBW-TV in Monterey/Salinas, Calif., working with the news directors at those stations.

Candy Altman, a Hearst Television vice president, News since 2002, who has focused on Hearst Television’s multiple-award-winning election-coverage efforts, continues to spearhead special news and political-reporting projects, and training and development of news personnel, for which she has forged various industry partnerships.

“We consider this team to be the gold standard in local television news,” said Jordan Wertlieb, Hearst Television president. “Barb and her colleagues throughout the Hearst Television group have done a superb job providing viewers award-winning local journalism, impacting the communities we serve. Along with Candy’s continued contributions and the addition of two accomplished news executives in Andrew and Lori, Hearst Television is well positioned for the future as we expand our news product on all platforms.”

Maushard joined Hearst Television in 1997 and served in management roles at four Hearst stations before becoming vice president, News in 2008. Under Maushard’s stewardship, Hearst Television stations have earned television journalism’s highest national honors. In 2016, the news operations received a George Foster Peabody Award, an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award, a National Headliner Award, two Sigma Delta Chi Awards and two national Edward R. Murrow Awards. Among other industry roles, Maushard serves on the NBC News Channel board.

Under Vrees' direction, WCVB earned an Edward R. Murrow Award for "Overall Excellence" as the nation's most outstanding news station; he also was named Broadcasting & Cable magazine’s News Director of the Year (top 25 markets) for 2012. He previously was news director at Hearst’s WMUR-TV in Manchester, N.H., and assistant news director at KOAT.

Under Waldon’s leadership, KCRA earned a National Edward R. Murrow Award for Breaking News and three consecutive regional Murrow Awards for Overall News Excellence, among numerous other honors. She joined KCRA from WISN-TV, where she was Wisconsin’s first African American news director and led that station to news-ratings leadership. She serves on the NBC News Directors Task Force, and is a visiting faculty member at The Poynter Institute for Journalism Studies, a Leadership Coach for the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA), a graduate of the National Association of Broadcasters’ Broadcast Leadership Training program, and an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
