CTV GLOBEMEDIA Independent CIVI-TV (A-CHANNEL)/VICTORIA-VANCOUVER VP/GM and A-CHANNEL national Head of News RICHARD GRAY is transferring to sister Independent CHRO-TV (A-CHANNEL OTTAWA)/PEMBROKE-OTTAWA and the co-owned CHUM RADIO OTTAWA cluster as VP.
GRAY, who will start the new job on SEPTEMBER 1st, replaces CHRIS GORDON, who was upped to President of CTV's CHUM RADIO in APRIL. He will oversee Talk CFRA-A, Sports CFGO-A (THE TEAM 1200 AM), Adult Hits CKKL (93.9 BOB FM), and AC CJMJ (MAJIC 100) and will continue his A-CHANNEL national Head of News duties. The move represents a return to CHRO-TV for GRAY, who served as Dir. of Imformation Programming at the station when it was known as "THE NEW RO" under CHUM LTD. ownership.
The A-CHANNEL stations will be nationally rebranded as simply "A" in the FALL, when the system adds service to the MARITIMES (full-time, through ASN) and ALBERTA (part-time, on ACCESS, which is expected to retain educational programming in daytime hours).
