Fox LA GM Bill Lamb to Retire

By Kevin Eck 

Bill Lamb, senior vice president and general manager of the Fox-owned duopoly in Los Angeles, has just announced his retirement. Lamb has been with KTTV-KCOP since 2019.

“As I have said before, ‘The only constant is change,'” Lamb wrote in a note to staff obtained by TVSpy. “In that spirit, I’ve made the decision to step away from my 50-year television career. I don’t know if I’m comfortable calling it “retirement,” but I do plan to spend more time with my family and my golf clubs! I’m not leaving tomorrow. I will be continuing in my role here at KTTV until October 3, or until they name my replacement.”

Lamb thanked station staff, along with Fox and Jack Abernethy, whom he said was “honest, smart—and never lets us get caught in the trap of resisting change just because it’s uncomfortable. I can honestly say, he remains the most interesting person I’ve ever met.”


He joined KTTV-KCOP in July of 2019 after 17 years as the president and gm of WDRB and WBKI in Louisville—and vp of Broadcast Operations for Block Communications, Inc. overseeing eight television stations.

Lamb has been in broadcasting for more than 50 years. He started his career in Flint, Michigan. He then moved to Nashville, Jacksonville, Fla., Birmingham, Ala., Miami, and Peoria, Ill., before Louisville and Los Angeles.
