Rhodes has held several television management jobs, including as vice president of operations for TCT Network, program manager for KPTV in Portland, Ore. and assistant general manager as KTVL in Medford, Ore. From 2008-12, he was an administrator of personal income tax and compliance with the Oregon Department of Revenue.

Rhodes begins at KEYC May 6. He replaces Dennis Wahlstrom, who retired in March after 25 years as general manager.
