Kristina Lockwood has been named president and general manager of KHON, LIN Media’s Fox affiliate in Honolulu.
It is a return to KHON for Lockwood, who has previously served as the station’s national sales manager. In her new role, she will also be responsible for KHON-D2, Honolulu’s CW affiliate.
“We are excited to have Kristina back at KHON-TV. She is an outstanding broadcast executive with strong roots in Honolulu,” LIN Media Television EVP Scott Blumenthal said in announcing the hire. “Her unique blend of sales experience in both television and digital media, leadership skills and strong relationships make her an ideal candidate for this position and for advancing our key initiatives.”
Most recently, Lockwood was the director of sales statewide for Cox Media’s California division. She replaces Joe McNamara, who exited KHON last week.
