Rodman Named KSAZ GM

Mark Rodman has been named vice president and general manager of KSAZ Phoenix. He takes over the position immediately and reports to Jack Abernethy, CEO of Fox Television Stations.

Rodman succeeds Pat Nevin, who departed in August. "Mark will provide great leadership for our market leading duopoly in Phoenix," said Abernethy. "While running KTBC Austin, the station became a proving ground for innovation and impactful change."
