Kummer headed to Tennessee

WBAY-TV News Director Matt Kummer is staying with Gray but moving to Knoxville, Tennessee to lead the newsroom at WVLT-TV/WBXX-TV.

“After an amazing decade leading the WBAY-TV newsroom, I’m heading south,” Kummer wrote on social media. “Already memorizing the lyrics to Rocky Top!”

Kummer started at WBAY-TV in 2011. Before that he was an executive producer at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis, an executive producer at WISH-TV in Indianapolis, an executive producer at WLUK-TV in Green Bay, and a newscast producer at WJBK-TV in Detroit.
