CBS Names Parquet-Taylor Dallas Station Manager
Andrea Parquet-Taylor on Monday was promoted to vice president and station manager of CBS-owned KTVT (CBS) and KTXA (independent) in Dallas-Fort Worth (DMA 5). The announcement was made today by Peter Dunn, President, CBS Television Stations, and Gary Schneider, President and General Manager, CBS 11 and TXA 21.
Parquet-Taylor will report to Gary Schneider, the stations’ GM, and work closely with him on supervising all departments at the duopoly. She assumes this new role after spending most of the past 18 years as a local news executive.
Prior to joining ETVT-KTXA as VP-news director in February 2017, Parquet-Taylor was the news director at WNCN Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; WXYZ Detroit; WRAL and WRAZ in Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; and WMAR Baltimore.
Parquet-Taylor’s successor as news director will be announced at a later date.
“Since joining our CBS Television Stations family, it has become clear to us that Andrea is well-suited to make the transition from being a news director to becoming a station manager who helps lead an entire local broadcast-digital organization,” Dunn said. “We look forward to seeing her make the most of this opportunity to take on a bigger role at CBS 11, TXA 21 and the stations’ digital platforms.”
Parquet-Taylor holds a bachelor’s degree in communications arts and sciences from Michigan State University.
