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.
