New KSBY Boss Hires Doug Barden as News Director

Doug Barden, the news director at KBAK-KBFX in Bakersfield, CA, has been hired to lead the newsroom at San Luis Obispo’s KSBY.

Barden will replace Dave Schermer, who left the station earlier this year shortly after Kathleen Choal became the NBC-affiliate’s president and general manager.

Choal, a TV news veteran who previously served as news director and station manager at Tucson’s KVOA, was impressed by Barden’s resume.

“With his experience and passion for news, Doug was exactly the journalist I was looking for to lead this newsroom,” Choal told TVSpy.

Barden worked as an assistant news director at Salt Lake City’s KSTU and Reno’s KRNV before becoming KBAK-KBFX’s news director in 2008. His first day with KSBY is set for July 11th.

KSBY News Director Resigns After New Station Boss Assumes Leadership

News director Dave Schermer, who has been with KSBY since 2006, is stepping down from his position at the San Luis Obispo NBC-affiliate.

The move comes after Kathleen Choal, who has extensive experience leading newsrooms, assumed the president and general manager post on April 1st.

Choal came to KSBY from Tucson’s KVOA, where she served as news director and station manager. Choal joined KVOA as news director in 2005 and was appointed station manager in 2009.

Announcing his resignation on Wednesday, Schermer said that he will now focus on building informational websites. He is set to stay with KSBY for the next several weeks.
