Tim McVay, KTVU-KICU vice president and general manager since 2004, is moving to Atlanta to take the same position at WSB-TV, according to a statement from the owner of the stations, Cox Broadcasting.
McVay has spent his entire 32-year television career with Cox. Before arriving in Oakland, he was at Cox stations in Dayton, Pittsburgh and WSB Atlanta. The Cox chain is based in Atlanta, where its major newspaper property, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, is located. Even though Atlanta is a smaller market, McVay will be heading up the chain’s flagship station. No replacement has been announced.
