PALM SPRINGS STATION NAMES NEWS DIRECTOR

Gino Lamont started his broadcast career toting a camera for KMIR back in 1997.

Wednesday, he was named the Palms Springs Entravision station’s news director.

In between, Lamont started on-air at the weather set on weekends.

Then he moved to mornings, launching the station’s AM offering in 1999.

In 2010, he took to the anchor desk for the 5, 6, 6:30, 9 and 11pm newscasts.

“Gino is the perfect person to lead the newly combined KMIR/KVER newsroom into the future,” said Gene Steinberg SVP/General Manager at the Entravision stations.

So for his first new director job, he gets two news operations.

Sweet.
