Hearst TV's Maushard Adds Responsibilities
Barbara Maushard, who since 2008 has served as a VP of news for Hearst Television, will succeed Brian Bracco in oversight of the company’s corporate news efforts.
In her expanded role, Maushard will lead Hearst Television’s news product — on-air, online and on mobile platforms.
“Barb has served with distinction at several Hearst stations, leading award-winning news teams,” David Barrett, Hearst Television chairman and CEO, said in a statement. “Her dedication to quality and excellence in local journalism has been instrumental in the success our stations have had in serving their local audiences.
Maushard will continue to work closely with Candy Altman, a VP of Hearst Television news.
Before moving to the New York headquarters in 2008, Maushard was news director at Hearst’s WESH-TV, the NBC affiliate in Orlando, Fla. Her career with Hearst has taken her through four of the company’s stations: Milwaukee’s WISN-TV; Fort Smith/Fayetteville, Ark.’s KHBS/KHOG; and Kansas City’s KMBC-TV.
Maushard has served as vice-chair of the ABC News Directors Advisory Board and is a member of the Radio-Television Digital News Association.
