FTVLive FIRST told you back on June 19th that KTXL (Sacramento) had parted ways with News Director Brandon Mercer.
Well, Mercer has landed a new gig just down the road in San Francisco.
Mercer broke the news of his new job on his Facebook page:
I first worked at a CBS affiliate in 1997, and the network promo that season says it best, “CBS: Welcome Home.”
I’m thrilled to be heading back to the San Francisco Bay Area and back to CBS as Director of Digital Content and social media for KPIX-TV, KBCW-TV, KCBS Radio, LIVE 105 FM, Alice@97.3 / RadioAlice.com, and 99.7 [Now!].
The caliber of these teams and the quality of content they create for these brands is the absolute highest. I couldn't imagine an opportunity more fulfilling. The San Francisco Bay Area is a vibrant, diverse, and idea-driven media market, and my family and I are thrilled to be a part of it.
