Hearst Television has named former WCVB director of engineering Dave Kaylor director of veteran recruiting for Hearst Television.

Starting July 1, Kaylor will help Hearsts’s vp of Human Resources recruit military veterans for open positions throughout the station group.

Kaylor served in the U.S. Navy for forty years. He retired in 2013 as the Senior Enlisted Leader for Naval Reserves Navy Central Command, Commander U.S. Fifth Fleet, based in Bahrain as Senior Chief Petty Officer.

“Dave’s exemplary military service, experience and relationships have been an excellent resource for Katherine and our stations as we have increased our outreach to veteran job applicants,” said Hearst Television president Jordan Wertlieb. “Many of these applicants are well qualified for open positions not only in engineering, but in all of our stations’ departments, including sales and news. We are very fortunate to have Dave leading this effort to broaden our company’s participation in the important work of hiring our military service men and women as they transition to civilian careers.”
