KUED's nationwide search for a new general manager landed on a man who's career has taken him nationwide.
Well, not quite. But James Morgese, who takes over at Channel 7 on Dec. 1, has been at a number of stations in a number of states in the past 30 years - most recently in Bowling Green, Ky., where he was the general manger of both the public television and public radio stations.
He's also worked at PBS stations in Colorado, Idaho and Florida and NBC affiliates in Colorado and New York.
"James brings a wealth of public television experience to the position and KUED's viewers will be the beneficiaries," says Fred Esplin, director of institutional development at the University of Utah. "The university is delighted that he has accepted the position and has full confidence in his ability to build on the great tradition of service for which KUED is known."<
