Fox-owned WJBK in Detroit has named Greg Easterly as its new General Manager.

Easterly, most recently was Senior Vice President of Group Operations for Tribune Media (soon-to-be Nexstar), where he oversaw 15 markets.

He’s also worked as GM at WPIX in New York, WGN in Chicago and WJW in Cleveland.

Easterly succeeds Mike Renda, who is retiring at the end of this week.

Easterly is….well…thrilled

“I’m thrilled to be returning to the Fox family at a legacy station like WJBK, with a strong commitment to local news and community service,” said Easterly. “I can’t wait to begin working with the talented and dedicated team here.”

Patience, Greg. Give it another week.
