Nexstar Broadcasting Group named a top executive for its Rockford, Ill., TV station.
Joseph Denk, general manager of Fox affiliate KFXA Cedar Rapids, Iowa, joined the company as vice president and GM of WQRF-TV Rockford, also a Fox affiliate.
He will also head up the operations of Mission Broadcasting's WTVO Rockford, which Nexstar operates under a shared-services agreement.
That will be familiar territory for Denk, who ran KGAN, as well as KFXA, under a shared-services agreement in Cedar Rapids.
Denk is also familiar with Illinois, having run WRSP-TV Springfield, which was also a Fox affiliate.
