"Mike has proven his great leadership abilities at three Fox-owned stations over a 15-year tenure," said Jack Abernethy, Fox Television Stations CEO. "Regardless of the roles he's held, he always inspires his team to be better, work smarter and think differently. There is no person better qualified to take charge of our premier Detroit station than him."
Renda was general manager in Philadelphia and Cleveland as well.
"I feel honored to have the opportunity to lead the No. 1 station in Detroit, known for its edgy, unconventional and hard-hitting news product," said Renda. "I look forward to continuing the station's legacy of serving Detroit."
Murri was named the General Manager of the Year by B&C in 2011 for his tireless devotion to WJBK, and to Detroit, his hometown. At the time of his death, Abernethy called Murri "one of our most beloved members of the Fox Television Stations."
