JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP is shuffling management, with OMAHA VP/Market Manager STEVE WEXLER reassigned to become GM at NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV/MILWAUKEE, replacing the exiting MARK STRACHOTA, along with continuing his EVP of TV and Radio Operations duties. WICHITA cluster VP/GM ROB BURTON takes over WEXLER's OMAHA VP/GM slot, and WICHITA GSM ERIC MCCART is upped to VP/GM to replace BURTON.
Vice Chairman/CEO DOUG KIEL says, "We have a strong and deep management group at JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP and these new assignments for several of our leaders will help us best leverage their abilities in the future. Our expectations for our MILWAUKEE, OMAOA and WICHITA markets are very high and these executives are just the right people to meet and exceed them."
