Juan Villa is set to become news director of Phoenix’s KTVW.

Villa will succeed Marco Flores, who recently left KTVW to join Univision’s Los Angeles O&O KMEX.  He’ll officially join the KTVW newsroom in February.

Villa is familiar with the Phoenix market, having recently served as an executive producer at Telemundo station KTAZ.  Before joining KTAZ, Villa worked for La Voz, the city’s Spanish language newspaper, as a general assignment reporter.

Villa is a graduate of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications. [via Media Moves]
