Jim Prather, TV president for the Journal Broadcast Group and GM of its
WTMJ-TV Milwaukee, has been named president of news for the company’s five TV
stations and GM of its KTNV-TV Las Vegas. Prather was news director at WTMJ and
VP, news, before being named VP and then president of television.
Journal will no longer have a TV president, with the group’s five GM’s now
reporting directly to Journal Broadcast Group CEO Doug Kiel.
WTMJ-TV General Sales Manager Mark Strachota will be interim station manager
while Kiel shops for a new VP/GM.
