Meredith announced that they are moving KPTV (Portland) General Manager Patrick McCreery to a newly created role, local media group vice president of news and marketing.
It is a job position that Meredith had in the past, but was cut out during the bad economy.
McCreery has been with KPTV for over 10 years, working his way up from Assistant News Director to ND to Station Manager to GM.
McCreery also worked at KPHO Phoenix as a special projects executive producer when he first joined Meredith in 2003.
KPTV bumped up sales guy Andy Delaporte to the GM chair.
