KATV Promotes Nick Genty to News Director

Nick Genty has been named news director of Little Rock’s KATV.

Joining the station as assistant ND just a couple of months ago after 21 years with crosstown rival KTHV, Genty succeeds Randy Dixon, who announced in February that he was leaving KATV after more than three decades with the ABC-affiliate.

Genty announced the promotion via Twitter, saying, “I have been given the job to lead the best News Team in the market.”

Genty joined KATV in February as a replacement for the departing Alan Faulkner. At the time, he said that the job “just kind of found me.” Before joining KATV, Genty worked as an executive producer for KTHV. [Via Arkansas Business]
