KTVU News Director Following Cox to WFXT

By Kevin Eck 

wfxt logoLee Rosenthal, news director for current Cox Media owned FOX affiliate KTVU, has confirmed he’s following the station group to WFXT in Boston.

Both WFXT and WHBQ in Memphis will become Cox stations, while KTVU will become a FOX owned station, when a swap between the station groups in June becomes official.

Rosenthal told TVSpy he’s not sure when he’s leaving the San Francisco Bay Area station for Boston. Chances are it will happen sometime after the deal goes through.


He came to the Cox owned FOX affiliate in April 2013 from WXIN in Indianapolis.
