Head of ABC and FOX O&O in LA both retiring within months of each other. Major coincidence or more going on in the LA Market than meets the eye?

Kevin gave me my first station Programming job, for which I’m forever grateful, when he was GM at KSTW in Seattle-Tacoma. I was a fresh-faced Research Analyst out of Telerep in NYC, and can’t begin to enumerate how much I learned from him about studio negotiations, scheduling strategy, and, most importantly, the impact local TV can have on the community. Best wishes for a fulfilling retirement, Kevin!
