2024 Recipient: Kristie Anderson

Kristie AndersonRTDNA is honored to announce Kristie Anderson, assistant news director at WXIA in Atlanta, has been selected as the 2024 recipient of RTDNA’s Loren Tobia Leadership Award. 

Anderson stepped up as interim news director at WXIA after the newsroom went nearly six months without a news director. During that time, the station’s general manager also departed. Despite the uncertainty, Anderson led with empathy and integrity. 

“I had the privilege to work alongside Loren Tobia for many years, and I cannot overstate how special it is to receive a leadership award bearing his name,” said RTDNA President and CEO Dan Shelley.
