Jim Himes has been named president and general manager of WGHP, Local TV’s Fox affiliate in Greensboro, N.C., Broadcasting & Cable reports.
Himes joins WGHP from WREG, Local TV’s CBS affiliate in Memphis, Tenn., where he was station manager since 2011 and general sales manager since 2007.
“Jim is one of a kind,” Local TV CEO Bobby Lawrence said in a statement. “The enthusiasm and commitment he brings to this business is unrivaled. We’ll certainly miss him in Memphis, but he’s a great fit for WGHP. We couldn’t be happier for him.”
At WGHP, Himes replaces Karen Adams, who left the station to run WJZY-WMYT, Fox’s newly-acquired duopoly in Charlotte.
