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]

Following High-Profile Departures, KATV Hires New Assistant News Director

Little Rock’s KATV has hired Nick Genty as assistant news director, filling one of two vacancies atop its news team.

In January, Alan Faulkner left the assistant AD post and longtime news director Randy Dixon announced earlier this month that he was departing as well.

Genty comes to the ABC-affiliate from crosstown rival KTHV, where he worked for 21 years, first as a photojournalist and most recently as an executive producer.

“This job just kind of found me, and it was just a really good opportunity,” Genty said. “I’m always a believer that news finds you.”

KATV continues to search for a new news director.
