San Diego’s KGTV is giving Joel Davis a promotion. The former news director has now been named station manager of the ABC affiliate.
“Joel has been at my side for more than five years, working hand in hand, and 10News has seen some tremendous successes in that time,” KGTV general manager Jeff Block said in a statement. “He is uniquely qualified for this position, and I look forward to Joel taking on day-to-day operations here at ABC10.”
“I am excited and humbled to be offered this new opportunity here at ABC10,” Davis said. “I am so very proud of the great work our journalists and managers have done over the past five years, and the entire 10News team shares in my success!”
Prior to joining KGTV, Davis was managing editor at ABC affiliate WFTV in Orlando.
His new position is effective Monday.
