Kenneth Freedman has been named general manager of KWQC, Young Broadcasting’s NBC-affiliate in Davenport, IA.
Freedman comes to KWQC from KGW in Portland, OR, where he served as general sales manager. Throughout his career, he has held management positions at Salt Lake City’s KSTU as well as Orlando stations WKMG, WOFL, and WRBW.
“Ken has been an inspiring leader throughout his career-building broadcast and new media teams, and leading those teams to setting sales records and growing business at every station where he has worked,” said Young Broadcasting president Deborah McDermott, in announcing the move. “KWQC is in good hands with his talent, experience and initiative, and I am confident that he will play a vital role in the future of the station and Young.”
Freedman, who succeeds interim GM Brian Greif, says that he looks forward to expanding KWQC’s “presence on-air, online and in the community.”
