Marvin Rhodes has been named general manager at KEYC, United Communications Corporation’s CBS affiliate in Mankato, Minn.
Rhodes has held several television management jobs, including as vice president of operations for TCT Network, program manager for KPTV in Portland, Ore. and assistant general manager as KTVL in Medford, Ore. From 2008-12, he was an administrator of personal income tax and compliance with the Oregon Department of Revenue.
“Marvin believes in the power of broadcasters to make a community better — better for residents, better for business, better for future generations,” United Communications Corporation president Lucy Brown Minn said in a statement. “We’re delighted to welcome him back into broadcasting, where he has made important contributions during a career on the air and in the executive office.”
Rhodes begins at KEYC May 6. He replaces Dennis Wahlstrom, who retired in March after 25 years as general manager.
