Scripps has hired a new GM at their Las Vegas station.
The company announced that Chris Way is the new vice president and general manager for KTNV.
Way is currently the GM at sister Scripps station KMTV 3 in Omaha, Nebraska.
“Since joining KMTV, Chris has made a huge impact in Omaha,” said Debbie Turner, vice president of television station operations. “In a relatively short time, Chris has led efforts to advance the brand and visual presentation of our news product, while rebuilding the station’s sales operation. Chris’s move to Las Vegas is a homecoming. He knows the uniqueness of Vegas and its players. And his multifaceted background in operations, news and sales makes him well-equipped to help build on the station’s current success.”
Way is an industry veteran who has focused his career on digital media. He was the director of digital media for KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, where he managed the station’s overall digital business.
