New ND Named in KC


KCTV in Kansas City has hired Larry Perret as their new News Director.

Perret has a looooooong resume as a ND, we worked at a number of LA stations and was most recently the news boss at KTVX in Salt Lake City. 

He also spent time as a TV consultant.

FTVLive told you last month that Perret was spotted in the KPHO (Phoenix) newsroom. He was pitching himself for the ND job, but didn't get it. 

Looks like KC was his second (or third, forth) choice.  

He replaces Blaise Labbe, who left the station last Summer for WOAI in San Antonio.
