A new boss will soon be calling the shots in the KVUE newsroom.

The city’s ABC affiliate has hired Tim Ryan to serve as news director.

Ryan arrives from KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver, where he’s been assistant news director since 2000.

Both KUSA and KVUE are owned by Tegna.

Ryan replaces Mike Redding, who is departing after less than a year on the job for another position with Tegna.

“Tim has been on the forefront of innovation and excellence at KUSA,” KVUE president and general manager Kristie Gonzales said. “We’re happy to have his immense skillset in the building to continue the ratings and digital momentum at KVUE.”

Prior to Denver, Ryan worked as an anchor, reporter, photographer, producer and assignment editor at TV stations in Wichita, Kan., and Fort Smith, Ark.

Ryan has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism and a master’s from the University of Colorado at Denver.
