Chris Flynn has been named vice president and director of sales for KPIX-KBCW, the CBS duopoly in San Fransisco.

It is a return to KPIX-KBCW for Flynn, who worked at the stations from 1999-2006. He has most recently worked as general sales manager at KOFY, the independent station in San Francisco.

“Chris is a proven winner with great experience and established relationships in this market.  He is also a talented manager and inventive marketing executive.  We are elated that Chris is returning to our stations,” KPIX-KBCW general manager Bruno Cohen said in a statement.

Flynn succeeds Dan Ackerman, who last month was named senior vice president for business strategy and ad innovation at the CBS Television stations.
