Reardon, who preceded Pearson as KTLA’s station manager before his promotion last year, said of Pearson’s hire, “Pam brings a tremendous amount of experience in marketing and promotion to the station. She will oversee marketing, production and programming for us and will certainly have a role in our future growth.”
