Longtime broadcaster, head of Cox duopoly plans to leave Jan. 31
Marty Ozer, the general manager of Cox’s Reno duopoly of KRXI (Fox) and KAME (MNT) announced his retirement Monday.
Ozer broadcasting career has spanned 42 years. He spent 17 years as GM of WNEW New York; was executive vice president of Metro TV Sales; was president of Katz National; and was also vice president of Embassy Pictures.
He set Jan. 31 as his target to leave the stations, but will stay until his replacement is named. He said he plans to do consulting.
Commenting on his plans, Cox’s Bruce Baker said: “While with Cox and Reno, he has served not only our company but the Reno community and TV industry with distinction. Early in the process of the purchase and building of the duopoly in Reno, Marty got involved and has been instrumental in leading the Reno team in building these stations into strong competitors. His leadership and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“one-liners’ will be missed, but we all celebrate his dedication to our industry and he has earned the right to take his winnings and enjoy the Reno lifestyle.”
