Fox O&O Names New GM

Fox has named Kieran Clarke as the station's new General Manager of its two stations in Charlotte, WJZY and WMYT.

Jack Abernethy, CEO of Fox Television Stations, made the announcement to staff Wednesday morning. Clarke begins next month, succeeding Karen Adams, who left this summer for another corporate assignment.

Clarke was executive vice president for Des Moines, Iowa-based Meredith Corp., which operates 16 television stations across the nation, including the Fox affiliate in Greenville, S.C. 

Before that, Clarke was GM of the Fox affiliate in Portland, Oregon. 

“Leading WJZY and WMYT is a tremendous opportunity, especially given the stations’ valuable franchises such as the Panthers, NASCAR and the FOX prime time lineup,” Clarke said in a statement. “I am also eager to grow and strengthen FOX46’s local news product and call Charlotte, a place where we already have family, home.”
