Herzig named news director at KCAL

KCAL has filled its vacant news director post with veteran news exec Dennis Herzig, according to sources.

Herzig, who will reportedly take the controls on April 14, spent a decade as assistant news director at ABC affiliate WPLG-TV in Miami and also served as news director at KSTP in Minneapolis.

KCAL, which lost most of its ranking news executives in the ownership changeover from Disney to Young Broadcasting in November, has been without anyone in the position since Bob Henry departed in December.
