Wayne Martin, the general manager of Lexington CBS affiliate WKYT, announced he will retire at the end of the year.
Martin’s retirement caps a 25-year career in television, the past 19 of them as WKYT’s GM. He joined the Gray Television station in 1993.
“Wayne represents the best of what we expect out of our managers, being an excellent professional manager and devoted to his community and his station,” Gray Television COO Bob Prather said in a statement. “We want all of our television stations to be part of the fabric of the community, and Wayne has clearly made sure that WKYT is an important part of the fabric of the Lexington market viewing area.”
