New KDVR-KWGN Boss Ed Kosowski: ‘I’m Very Hard News Oriented’

Ed Kosowski, who last week was appointed vice president of news at Denver duopoly KDVR-KWGN, says that he plans to shift the stations’ focus from entertainment to hard news.

“If you look at my track record, I’m very hard news oriented,” Kosowski, who comes to Denver from CNBC, told the Denver Post recently, adding that he sees “huge opportunities to come in with a fresh set of eyes.”

KDVR-KWGN previously employed Carolyn Kane, a veteran of reality shows and infotainment programming, as VP of content overseeing the stations’ move towards lighter fare. Shortly after Kane joined KDVR-KWGN, the CW-affiliate rebranded itself as “The Deuce” and dumped the long-standing 9 p.m. newscast in favor of the 7 p.m. 18-to-34-year-olds-centric “News on the Deuce.” Read more

Ed Kosowski named VP of News at KDVR/KWGN

Ed Kosowski is leaving Englewood Cliffs and headed to Englewood, CO… or thereabouts.

Kosowski, currently Executive Producer at CNBC.com, has been named VP of News and Digital Content at Denver duopoly KDVR (FOX) and KWGN (CW). Kosowski spent the last six years at CNBC — four on the TV side producing shows including “Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo” and “Kudlow Report,” and the last two with CNBC.com.

Before CNBC, Kosowski was news director at WHDH (NBC) in Boston for four years and led the news department at KGO (ABC) in San Fransisco for three years. He’s also worked at shops in Miami, Chicago and Washington, DC.

Kosowski replaces Carolyn Kane who left in April after two years with the Local TV LLC duopoly.

Kosowski starts at KDVR/KWGN July 11.
