Don Pratt Tapped as VP-GM of Boise’s KBOI-KYUU

Don Pratt is stepping into the role of vice president and general manager at KBOI-KYUU, the Fisher Communications duopoly in Boise.

Pratt comes from the Fisher-owned station in Portland, ABC-affiliate KATU, where he has been the vice president and news director since 2006. Prior to that, he worked at WHDH in Boston, WCSC in Charleston and KGO in San Francisco.

“We’ve been very pleased with Don’s performance at KATU, where he took our news product to its next level, establishing the strongest news brand in the market,” said KATU general manager John Tamerlano, who is also the SVP of Fisher Regional Television.

“My background is in local news, having spent more than 20 years helping to build strong news departments based on exceptional coverage of breaking news and weather, and a commitment to strong investigative and consumer reporting,” Pratt said. “It’s a great fit for KBOI’s ‘Watching Out For You’ brand. KBOI also has strong ties to the community, and my goal is to build on that success, tell great stories about the beautiful Treasure Valley and help our advertising partners exceed their goals.”
