“Bert’s passion for television, combined with his deep knowledge of the Miami market and his 27 years working in both English- and Spanish-language television at the local and network levels, makes him the ideal choice to lead WPLG,” Emily Barr, president and chief executive officer of Post-Newsweek Stations said in a statement.

Medina replaces Dave Boylan who announced he was leaving the station in August.

Medina comes to WPLG from Cangas Communications, a media investment and management firm, which he founded and led.
