Gray TV’s Mankato Leader Loses Cancer Fight


He’d be celebrating five years at Gray Television‘s dual CBS/FOX-affiliated broadcast station serving the Mankato, Minn., market this month.

Sadly, the local leader’s brief battle with cancer ended Thursday, Sept. 2, leading those who worked with him at KEYC-12 and at Gray to mourn his loss.

Ed Woloszyn had been VP/GM of KEYC, a sister to low-power KMNF-LD, the NBC and CW+ affiliate serving Mankato.

Woloszyn joined KEYC in September 2016 as GSM and was promoted to VP/GM in March 2019.

His resume includes stints as GSM of TEGNA-owned WQAD-8 in Davenport (Quad Cities), Iowa-Ill., rising from NSM in March 2013. He’s also been an account executive at WISC-TV in Madison, Wisc. He began his career in January 1993 as a Chicago Blackhawks TV Asst. AE for Blair Television in Chicago, following an internship in the community affairs department of WFLD-TV, the FOX affiliate in the Windy City.

Woloszyn was active in the community and in the industry, serving as a member of the Minnesota Broadcasters Association.

“Gray Television lost a great leader today and he will be greatly missed,” SVP/Local Media Mike King said, expressing shock and sadness by Woloszyn’s passing.

Woloszyn is survived by his wife, Amy, and their children Estelle and Henry.
