News Manager on the Move

WHBF-TV News Director Heather Stevenson has accepted a new position in another Illinois market.  Beginning August 3, she will be Assistant News Director at WICS-TV in Springfield, where she will work with News Director Kent Harrell. 
  Stevenson has been at WHBF in the Quad Cities since 2008.  She recently oversaw the station's transition to HD and the installation of a new set and a new anchor team. She has been a member of the INBA Board of Directors, and has helped with critique sessions at many recent conventions.  She is currently the chair of the Fall Convention in Rock Island, a role which she intends to continue.
  Heather is married to INBA Board Member Will Stevenson, who is a Reporter/Anchor at WTAX-AM in Springfield, so this move will end their commuter marriage.
