Nexstar acquired the stations from Newport Television last year.
Doutre-Jones began his career at KBHK (now KBCW) San Francisco in 1983, moving up to general sales manager and station manager. In 2001, he was vice president and general manager of XETV and XHUPN (now XDTV) San Diego. Most recently, Doutre-Jones was vice president of Jones Broadcast Group while also operating RDJ Global, providing consulting and M&A advisory services to broadcast, media, technology and finance companies.
"Richard has an impressive industry background with extensive experience in station management, local news production and programming, and strategic planning and positioning across multiple media platforms," said Brian Jones. "In addition to leading teams that delivered effective marketing solutions for local and national advertisers, he has a proven long-term record of creating new revenue-generating opportunities by implementing innovative programming strategies and unique web/mobile concepts."
Doutre-Jones met his wife at BYU in Salt Lake City, where he played football. Their two oldest sons attended college there, and a third son will return to BYU after completing his Latter Day Saints mission this summer.
"I have deep ties to the Salt Lake City area and the local communities throughout Utah, where many immediate and extended family members, as well as close business and personal friends reside," he said. "I am thrilled to be working with the exceptional teams at KTVX and KUCW and will utilize the management experience and relationships built over my career to generate results."
