Longtime KABC Gm to Retire

Longtime KABC General Manager Arnie Kleiner says that he is going to retire from the station at the end of January.

Kleiner has with the West coast O&O for 19 years. 

“Through his strong leadership, Arnie has led a team that has built KABC into the number one television station in Los Angeles,” said ABC O&O boss Rebecca Campbell. “We are extremely appreciative of his many years of commitment and dedication to our Owned Station Group, and the great passion that Arnie has brought to KABC.”

“I’ve been so lucky to have had such a long and rewarding career in the television business,” said Kleiner. “I’ve had the great privilege of working with an amazing group of people and I’m very glad to have helped build KABC-TV into the great station it is today. I leave the station in good hands, and they can count on me to be their most loyal viewer.”

There’s no word yet on a replacement.
