Nikki Newbrough is leaving her role as an on-air reporter for a news management position at KWWL. She will serve as the Assignment Editor and will oversee producers, reporters and story selection.

Nikki is a proud graduate of Wartburg College and has been a loyal employee of KWWL for the past seven years. The Assignment Editor is a vital position in the newsroom. “The Assignment Editor is really the key position in the newsroom. Everything we decide to cover first goes through that desk. Nikki's experience, her attention to detail and knowledge of our region makes her the perfect person for that role,” said Ron Steele.

“Nikki is a natural-born leader who will always go the extra mile for anyone. Add that with her vast knowledge of eastern Iowa and solid news judgment, this promotion is more than well-deserved,” said Amanda Goodman.

Shane Moreland, News Director at KWWL echoes the sentiments of Ron and Amanda. “Nikki is a proven leader in our newsroom.   In the past five years, she’s done about every job here.  I’m looking forward to her taking that successful experience and guide reporters, producers and other KWWL staff.”

Nikki started her new role on Monday, December 14th. She will still report on various occasions.
