While Scripps has been busy the last few days laying people off at their station's across the country, they laid down the ax long enough to make a hire.
Former KTVK News Director Brad Remington was named the new GM at KMGH in Denver.
“Denver is a high-profile market in the company, and Brad possesses the unique combination of management style, editorial judgment and knowledge of the local area to serve the community and to meet the needs of advertisers,” said Steve Wasserman, vice president and divisional general manager for Scripps. “Brad has the right entrepreneurial spirit and understanding of the changing habits of consumers to drive KMGH in the right direction for our news products across multiple platforms and customized sales solutions for area businesses.”
Remington has two prior stints in Denver. In 2006 he was news director at KDVR, the FOX affiliate. In less than three years he significantly grew the ratings for the 9 p.m. newscast. The station also earned critical acclaim with both an Emmy Award and Associated Press award two years in a row for Best Evening Newscast. He spent seven years at KMGH as managing editor from 1989-1996.
