Michael Nurse Promoted to GM of WKBW

Granite Broadcasting has named Michael Nurse president and general manager of Buffalo ABC affiliate WKBW.

“For nearly 30 years, Michael has proven himself to be an experienced manager and industry leader,” said Duane Lammers, Granite’s chief operating officer. “He is a seasoned broadcast executive that embodies Granite’s commitment to the communities we serve.  With a deep knowledge of the greater Buffalo market and our operations, he is the ideal person to lead WKBW.”

The move is effective July 1. Nurse has been WKBW’s station manager and vice president of sales for the last 11 years. He succeeds Bill Ransom who announced his retirement earlier this month.

Nurse started his career at WRKO radio in Boston and has served as GM at TV stations in Boston and Washington, D.C.
