Wilson said Malcolm told him he’d been contemplating a job change for some time. “I want to thank him for all of his hard work and effort,” Wilson said in a statement. “He has a magnetic personality and has been a real force at KTLA.”
He added, “KTLA is one of the jewels of our broadcast group and I know there are great things ahead.”
KTLA is a CW outlet that prides itself in its roots in the No. 2 Nielsen market. Formerly a WB outlet, the station celebrated its 60th anniversary last year with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Malcolm liked to point out that KTLA is the only Los Angeles station with “LA” in its name.
