Nexstar Names Another GM, This Time in Portland

By Kevin Eck 

Patrick Nevin has been named vp and GM of Portland, Oregon CBS affiliate KOIN.

“I am excited to take on this new opportunity at Nexstar and to return to the Pacific Northwest, a region of the country where I have deep personal, business and community relationships,” said Nevin. “In my new role, I will utilize the management and marketing experience I have garnered over my career to further grow the operations while delivering excellent results and greater levels of service to our local viewers and advertisers.”

Nevin last worked as interim vp and GM of the Nexstar’s KASW in Phoenix, Arizona. He replaces Adrienne Roark, who left in June to helm KPTV-KPDX in Portland.


Nexstar says Nevin “brings a comprehensive background in local news production, digital services, new business development and inventory control as well as local, national and regional sales to his new role.” He’s been the vp and GM of KFMB in San Diego, Calif. and has worked at KSAZ and KUTP in Phoenix, Arizona.
