WDAZ-TV Announces New Station Manager
WDAZ-TV is pleased to announce Rob Horken has been appointed station manager of the Grand Forks and Devils Lake television stations. Horken is the station’s current sales manager, and will assume duties as station manager immediately. He will also continue in his role as sales manager.
“I am excited about this…it is a new challenge,” Horken says. “We have an excellent news product that is dominant in the Northern Valley. And WDAZ’s commitment to sports is something that I will maintain and continue.”
Horken started at WDAZ in 1988 as an advertising representative. He was promoted to sales manager in 2000. Known for his role as “Ernie the Angler” on WDAZ news, he also has a personal love for the sport of fishing. He and his wife Margaret are life-long residents of East Grand Forks.
“I think being known as ‘Your Home Team’ is really more than just our slogan. We are the source for news, weather, and sports, but are also a dedicated member of this community. I will help us continue the legacy of service we have built here for the past 42 years.”
