New Channel 12 General Manager
WKRC-TV and the CinCW have a new boss, with Newport Television finally closing on the purchase of Clear Channel's TV stations last Friday for $1.1-billion. Les Vann from Syracuse has been named vice president and general manager for both stations.
Vann has been executive vice president and general manager over two Granite Broadcasting Corp. stations in New York: CBS affiliate WTVH-TV in Syracuse, and CBS/CW affiliate WBNG-TV in Binghampton.
GM Chris Sehring left Channel 12 in September to become President and GM at KOIN-TV in Portland, Oregon.
