Former MAB Board Chair (2009) Diane Kniowski has joined radio and television group owner Univision Communications as President and Regional GM of Local Media. Kniowski will be based in Univision’s Doral, Florida headquarters and will report directly to Univision CEO Vincent Sadusky.
Sadusky is the former President/CEO of Media General, which owned WOOD-TV (Grand Rapids) where Kniowski served as General Manager. Upon the sale of Media General to Nexstar Broadcasting, Kniowski advanced to the role of Senior Vice-President and Regional Manager.
“Diane’s experience operating a group of top-rated local TV and digital properties is a perfect fit for Univision’s local media group,” Sadusky said. “Diane understands how to build communities and her creative solutions will serve our audiences and advertisers well. The foundation of Univision for more than 50 years has been built on the strength of its local television and radio stations, many of which are among the highest consumed, English or Spanish.”
