Henning had been senior VP of Barrington Broadcasting Group, with oversight of several markets from 2006-2011.
Formerly KSFX, KOZL went independent after a split with the Fox network in 2011. Mark Gordon had been general manager.
"Leo has an impressive industry background with extensive executive experience in corporate and station management, news production and programming, and strategic planning across multiple operating units and media platforms," said Jones. "He has a proven long-term record of achieving outstanding operating and financial results by implementing innovative programming strategies and leading teams that delivered compelling and effective marketing solutions for local and national advertisers."
Prior to Barrington, Henning spent 33 years at the Quincy Newspapers Inc. Broadcast Group.
"I have deep ties to the local Ozarks community and throughout the Midwest, where my family and many close business and personal friends reside and where I began my broadcasting career," he said. "I am thrilled to be working with the exceptional team of broadcasters at KOZL, and will leverage the management experience and relationships built over my career to generate results."
