Anchorage based television stations KTUU and KYES are excited to announce the promotion of Yvette Morales into a senior management role. Morales moved to Anchorage from Valdez in 2011 to launch her career as an account executive at KTUU-TV.
Morales graduated from Valdez High School. While she was attending VHS and three of the four years she attended college, she worked for KVAK Radio. Following college, Yvette returned to Valdez and was a huge contributor to our community working on the Valdez Fishing Report, Women’s Silver Salmon Derby as well as local events and promotions.
“During her tenure Morales has done more than just evolve, she has embraced the need to push digital boundaries in traditional advertising and repeatedly crafted customized campaigns to exceed client expectations on all fronts,” KTUU General Manager and Vice President, Nancy Johnson said.
In 2019, Morales was recognized by parent company, Gray Media Group, which owns television stations in 93 markets nationwide for her work on a multi-platform campaign partnering Microcom with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for a 12-week series featuring a weekly fishing report.
“Yvette is incredibly intelligent, hard working and fun to have around,” said KVAK Manager Laurie Prax.”I have been blessed to have a lot of incredible people work for me in the last 24 years. Yvette is definitely one of my favorites. It is so fun to see her making her mark in Anchorage”.
