The Tulsa Area Region of the American Red Cross has named Regina Moon as its chief executive officer.
Moon is responsible for the oversight and management of the region, which is comprised of 32 counties with service centers in Claremore, Vinita, Sapulpa, Muskogee and Ponca City, and community chapters in Bartlesville and McAlester.
Moon said her staff of 40 provides the support structure for 900-plus volunteers who provide relief in disasters, teach emergency preparations to adults and children, and serve as the communication link between Oklahoma families and their loved ones serving overseas in the military.
A native of Prague, Moon moved frequently with her family due to her father's work. She graduated from Prague High School and earned her bachelor's degree in speech communications from East Central University.

She has also held general manager positions in Missouri and Kansas, as well as at KTUL channel 8 in Tulsa. She also was vice president-general manager at KMIZ-TV and KQFX-TV in Columbia, Mo., then for KSCC-TV and KSAS-TV in Wichita.
