Ed Kosowski Leaving KCTV

By Kevin Eck 

KCTV news director Ed Kosowski is leaving the Kansas City CBS affiliate.

His official last day is tomorrow. There’s no word where he’s heading or why he left.

Kosowski came to KCTV in 2014 after working at KDVR in Denver for three years.

Before Denver, he worked at CNBC for six years. Kosowski has also worked in Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Miami.

Out of Meredith’s 17 owned or operated stations, Kosowski is the sixth Meredith news director to move on in a little over a year.

At Atlanta station WGCL, Meredith announced it had hired former KVUE news director Frank Volpicella the same day GM Mark Pimentel let Larry Perret go and told staffers “The decision has been made that to continue moving forward, a change is needed in newsroom management.”

Leona Wood left KPHO-KTVK in Phoenix in November 2015 to “spend more time with her family.”

Brian Thouvenot left KMOV in St. Louis in June 2016.

At KVVU, Adam Bradshaw was fired from the Las Vegas Fox affiliate in October 2015 after more than nine years there.

Bradshaw told staffers in a memo “[KVVU gm] Todd [Brown] made the very classy offer to allow me to resign my position today, but I declined and he chose to fire me. He and I have very different opinions about how a News Department should run and we were never going to agree. I hold no bitterness towards Todd for wanting what he wants and you should not either. People move on in this business…I will move on in this business.”

In Nashville, WSMV news director Matthew Hilk was fired in March 2015.
