General Manager Leon Clark is leaving Scripps owned KGUN-KWBA in Tucson, Ariz. to oversee the company’s station in San Diego, Calif., his hometown.
Clark has been named as KGTV‘s new vice president and general manager effective November 19.
“Leon has proven himself a seasoned leader across all areas of the Scripps Local Media business, and his understanding of the evolving news landscape will benefit the team in San Diego,” said Brian Lawlor, president of Local Media. “I look forward to seeing the great work ahead for KGTV under Leon’s leadership.”
Clark joined Scripps in 2014, first leading Scripps’ radio operations in Tucson.
“Heading back home to San Diego is an exciting opportunity as I look to the next chapter in my career,” said Clark. “I have had an incredible experience with my colleagues in Tucson, and look forward to continuing my career with Scripps and helping San Diego continue its great work in that market.”
