CBS Names Philly GM

 Brien Kennedy

Brien Kennedy

CBS has announced its new leader for their Philadelphia duopoly. They're promoting Brien Kennedy from WCCO.

CBS Television Stations President Peter Dunn made the announcement, calling Kennedy, "an extremely talented and community-oriented broadcast executive".

Kennedy has family on the east coast, so it's a great move for him. He succeeds Jon Hitchcock who 'resigned' to run Tribune's WTIC in Hartford.

Kennedy has an impressive history of running stations: KPNX (Phoenix), WPEC, (West Palm), WXIA (Atlanta), and sales: WUSA (DC), WFMY (Greensboro), Blair Television.

Now bets are being taken as to whether ND Susan Schiller survives the change?
