WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 17, 2013) — The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) congratulates veteran news manager Kurt Davis on being named Vice President of News Services at CBS News.

In the new role, Davis will oversee the network’s satellite newsgathering operations, which provides news and information to 200 CBS affiliates and international partners. Most recently he had been the executive news director of the San Antonio CBS affiliate KENS.

"Kurt is an exceptional leader who I know will help CBS to continue to grow, thrive, and be a competitive organization,” said NABJ President Gregory Lee. " I  am also confident that Kurt will continue to help develop the next generation of leaders. When I was a student at Xavier University in New Orleans he helped encourage me in pursuit of this our chosen profession.”

Davis has also served as Manager of Coverage and Content at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia, News Director at WDSU-TV in New Orleans, News Director at WSET-TV in Lynchburg, Virginia, Assistant News Director at KATV-TV in Little Rock Arkansas, and Senior Producer at WBRZ-TV.

"Hopefully more people will become inspired to pursue careers in news management. Kurt’s success is evidence of not only the importance of managers of color, but also evidence that being on the management track enables one to have careers which are challenging yet rewarding,” added Lee.

His career in broadcast journalism began immediately after his graduation from Louisiana State University.

NABJ wishes Mr. Davis much success in his new role.
