ST. LOUIS—The board of directors of Ameren Corporation has elected well-known broadcast journalist Karen Foss as vice president for public relations at its Missouri-based utility company, AmerenUE. Foss spent more than 25 years as anchor of KSDK-TV in St. Louis.
In a newly created position, Foss will manage a staff of nine charged with media relations, customer communications, marketing and advertising, financial communications, nuclear information and outreach activities. She will report to Richard Mark, senior vice president, Missouri energy delivery.
A six-time Emmy award winner, Foss was in 2005 inducted into the Silver Circle by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for her 25 years of journalistic excellence. Foss began her broadcasting career in her early 30s as a film editor at the CBS affiliate in Kansas City—now KCTV and rose to the anchor position there before joining KSDK-TV in 1979.
