ABC Owned Television Stations today promoted Michael Carr to president and general manager of its KFSN Fresno, Calif. (DMA 55). In his new role, Carr has overall management responsibility for KFSN and its ancillary businesses.
Wendy McMahon, president, ABC Owned Television Stations, said: “Michael started his career at KFSN decades ago and has repeatedly proven his incredible dedication to the station and the community. During his tenure as news director, he led the newsroom to embrace innovation and next-generation storytelling while always ensuring a steadfast commitment to our mission as local news brands.
That vision and leadership led to increased ratings, audience reach and total engagement. You could say that Michael grew up with the station, and the station with him. This community knows him and trusts him, and just as important, the team at KFSN does too. I couldn’t imagine a better-suited leader than Michael to take KFSN-TV ABC30 into its next chapter.”
