KTVU names new news director
KTVU is hiring the news director at the Fox affiliate in Indianapolis to head its newsroom at Channel 2 in Oakland. Lee Rosenthal, 33, who has worked as a reporter, anchor, producer and the last four years as news director, will start April 22. He replaces Ed Chapuis, who left Channel 2 in January. Here’s a link to a story and video the Indianapolis Business Journal did about Rosenthal. Rosenthal comes to KTVU from Indianapolis FOX affiliate WXIN. Before working at WXIN, Rosenthal was executive producer at WBNS in Columbus, Ohio. He also worked at WFTS in Tampa, Fla., WVLT in Knoxville, Tenn., and WBNG in Binghamton, N.Y.
