Aaron Fernandez-Wische has been named vice president of content creation and distribution for Houston Fox owned station KRIV.
This is a revamped news director role created after Susan Schiller left the station in September.
“I am pleased to announce that Aaron will be our next newsroom leader,” said KRIV and KTXH senior vice president and general manager D’Artagnan Bebel. “He clearly understands the disruption and changed landscape of the media business and is ready to help reinvent the information gathering and dissemination process to meet consumers when, where, and how they choose to consume.”
Fernandez-Wische has worked at KPRC in Houston since 2012, first as a senior executive producer and most recently as assistant news director. Before that, he was ep of special projects and investigations for KNXV in Phoenix, KTVT in Dallas, WTTG in Washington, D.C., and WFTS in Tampa. Fernandez-Wische has also worked as special projects producer and manager for WEWS in Cleveland. Earlier in his career, he was a producer at KRIV in Houston, KOTV in Tulsa, and KRIS in Corpus Christi.
“I’m honored to be chosen for this reimagined leadership role working alongside the dedicated and passionate team at Fox 26,” said Fernandez-Wische. “I am committed to helping local news evolve, serving audiences when and where they need us with the trusted information, and connecting Houstonians in ways that enlighten, entertain, and improve their quality of life.”
