Well, the company finally found a replacement.
Scripps has named Dean Littleton as GM of the station, effective March 27.
“Dean has the right combination of strengths in both sales and journalism, which is somewhat rare in this business and is definitely an asset,” said Debbie Turner, vice president, television operations for Scripps. “Couple that with his leadership style and we know he will have an immediate, positive impact on a very talented team.”
Littleton spent the past eight years in Knoxville, Tennessee, most recently as general manager at WATE, an ABC affiliate.
