An extraordinary business and community leader, Wynona Sullivan has served as Station Manager and Development Director at KTSC-TV/DT in Pueblo since 1989. But Wynona’s career at KTSC started much earlier in 1972 when she began volunteering for the station’s first on-air fundraising auction. She served in many auction leadership roles—including auction chair—returning as a volunteer year after year, for 17 years. Wynona’s passion and aptitude for auction were clear, and her hard work helped the auction become a household name in southern Colorado.
In 1989 Wynona became KTSC’s development director and auction coordinator and in 1997, she was promoted to KTSC’s station manager.
In addition to securing program underwriting and sponsorships, Wynona supervises the staff, maintains outstanding station awareness throughout KTSC’s viewing area, and supervises production of two popular KTSC original programs, “Matchwits” and “Homework Hotline.”
While helping build relationships for KTSC, Wynona has been active with a number of charitable organizations throughout southern Colorado including the Kennedy Center Imagination Celebration—a non-profit arts education organization—creating opportunities for local artists and merchants and collaborations for a number of community organizations.
In 2001 Wynona joined the board of trustees for The Women’s Foundation of Colorado, and, since 1995, she has served on the board of the HARP Foundation, helping Pueblo build the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk to beautify the city.
Wynona has devoted countless hours to the Junior League of Pueblo, including serving as its president, vice president, and a number of training and advisory roles. Through the Junior League, Wynona also founded and serves as president of the Pueblo Infant-Toddler & Stimulation Center.
Wynona is the recipient of a 2006 “Sheep Dip” honor, presented by the Southern Colorado Broadcasters in Pueblo and is a member of the University of Southern Colorado’s Hall of Fame. Raised in a Kentucky coal mining town, Wynona moved to Colorado in 1965 when her physician husband, Wally, was stationed at the Pueblo Army Depot. Together they raised five children.
