Cox Media Group moves Omesh Somaru from San Francisco to head sales for the Jacksonville duopoly of WJAX-WFOX.
Tegna’s NBC affiliate WTLV tops the Jacksonville, Fla., market in total social actions over the last six months, according to Shareablee, while Graham Media’s indie WJXT leads in fans/followers. WTLV’s news director says making social a constant part of the daily news discussion — and listening to the audience on Facebook — has helped move the station into the top slot.
Graham Media-owned independent WJXT captures the lead among local media in Jacksonville, Fla., on social in both total actions and fans/followers according to Shareablee data. Cox Media Group’s CBS affil WJAX is its closest competitor on both fronts.
The Cox Jacksonville, Fla., Fox station will add an hour of news on Jan. 11 with the first half hour also airing on CBS affiliate WJAX.
With new anchors, new call letters and a new pace, Action News on WFOX and WJAX presents itself as an alternative to the long-established brands of News4Jax (WJXT) and First Coast News (WTLV and WJXX).
