COLORADO SPRINGS - A southern Colorado media veteran has been named as the new local sales manager at KOAA 5. Director of sales Steve Chase recently announced the promotion of Mike McKiernan, from digital account manager to leading the market's number one local television sales teams in both Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
"It's great to have the opportunity to promote one of our own for this role," said Chase. "Mike is someone who already understands our culture and the importance we place on our clients' success."
Before joining KOAA's sales team two years ago, McKiernan was already well known locally for working more than ten years at Graham Advertising in Colorado Springs. He also held management positions for more than a decade in the newspaper industry.
About the promotion, McKiernan said, "I'm really excited to work in a larger capacity with our team of great salespeople." "Coaching is my passion," he continued. "I look forward to supporting the talented KOAA sales team and being a partner with our clients."
