Todd Brown, KVVU general sales manager, has been named VP and GM of KVVU.
McDonald was general sales manager at KSMO for two years before his move to KVVU in 2008. "I greatly enjoyed leading KVVU to become a top-performing station in the Las Vegas market, and I look forward to new challenges and successes at KCTV-KSMO," said McDonald. "I am also pleased to return to Kansas City where I started my career with Meredith."
Prior to joining KVVU in 2002, Brown worked at KSEE Fresno. Brown also worked at KJEO Fresno and KKBB Bakersfield.
"In the 10 years that I have been at KVVU, I have seen the station grow into a market leader," said Brown. "I look forward to expanding upon the strong base Darrin has built, including new marketing and sales strategies."
McDonald succeeds Bobby Totsch atop the KC stations. Totsch departed in October. Paul Karpowicz, president of Meredith Local Media Group, saluted both men. "Darrin has been a great leader at KVVU and will use his skills and expertise to build upon our presence in the Kansas City market," said Karpowicz. "Todd is well poised to be successful as he steps into his new role at KVVU, and will be an asset to our group's leadership team."
