WPLG vice president and general manager Dave Boylan is leaving the Miami ABC affiliate to join Rentrak’s board of directors.
“Dave’s experience gives our Board first-hand input on what local stations want and will help us with the future local TV roadmap, so that every station will want to join the revolution that is happening in local TV with Rentrak,” Rentrak CEO and vice chairman Bill Livek said in a statement.
Boylan will also resign his position as the ABC affiliates board chairman. Broadcasting & Cable‘s Michael Malone reports Mike Devlin, the general manager at WFAA in Dallas, will replace him.
Boylan has been the VP-GM of WPLG since 2003. Before working in Miami, he was general manager at KTTV in Los Angeles, WTVT in Tampa and WGHP in Greensboro.
