Mark Lund to Lead Boston’s WBZ-WSBK

Mark Lund has been named president and general manager of Boston’s CBS O&O, WBZ-WSBK.  Lund will succeed Ed Piette who is retiring after 43 years in local TV, six of those leading WBZ-WSBK.

In a statement posted to Broadcasting & Cable, Lund said, “I am honored to have this terrific opportunity to rejoin CBS and come back to the stations where I got my start and an area that my wife Amy, a Boston College grad, and I have long considered our home.”

Lund, who is the son of former CBS president Peter Lund, comes from NBC Owned Television Stations where he was executive vice president of sales.  He got his start in television working as an intern for WBZ in the early eighties.

Piette, whose last day is one week from Friday told B&C,

“The only hard part about my decision is saying goodbye to the incredibly talented and dedicated team we have in Boston. They have been terrific and I will be forever grateful for their support and friendship.”
