Boaz resigns as prexy of Par Stations Group

James D. Boaz has resigned as president of the Paramount Stations Group, effective Dec. 12, citing a long-held desire to take a prolonged sabbatical.

A replacement for Boaz, who reports to Paramount Domestic TV president Steve Goldman, probably won’t be appointed until after the New Year, according to a studio spokesman.

Boaz was named to the post in 1991 after serving as VP-general manager of the group’s Houston station, KTXH-TV.

Par acquired the stations, then known as the TVX Broadcast Group, in 1991. The group consists of six independent TV stations in Philadelphia (WTXF), Dallas (KTXA), Houston, Raleigh-Durham, N.C. (WLFL), San Antonio (KRRT) and D.C. (WDCA).

The move is unrelated to other recent changes at the studio. In a memo to staff, Boaz explained that he had wanted to take a break for some time but that the timing was inappropriate with the transition of TVX into Paramount.
