Brandin Stewart is the new GM at CBS-owned KYW in Philadelphia, replacing Brien Kennedy who took a quick exit from the station last month..
And hey, what better qualification?
“My parents are from West Philly and I have fond memories of visiting the Delaware Valley to see my grandparents,” Stewart said in a release. “I can’t wait to get back and reconnect with the people and places that make Philly so great.”
He was poached away.
Stewart had been a mainstay in the NBC o&o system for the past 17 years or so.
Most recently, he was the vice president of sales at WMAQ in Chicago for the past five years..
