Meredith Corporation has promoted Patrick McCreery to executive vice president of operations for the local media group.
McCreery was previously the group’s vice president of news and marketing. His new role is effective immediately.
“Patrick has done a great job strengthening our local news and entertainment content and expanding our digital reach,” said president of news, Paul Karpowicz. Under McCreery’s leadership, Meredith’s portfolio of 17 television stations achieved top audience positions in morning or late news in most markets.
In his new role, McCreery will oversee all station operations. General managers will report directly to him as well as Kaprowicz.
“I am looking forward to working with our team of general managers and continuing to make improvements that benefit our viewers, followers and advertisers,” McCreery said.
McCreery has been with Meredith since 2003. He started as an executive producer at KPHO in Phoenix and worked his way up to assistant news director and eventually vice president and general manager.
