Brown was most recently the president of McGraw-Hill Broadcasting Company, a position he has held since 2008. He has worked for McGraw Hill in a variety of roles, including as VP-GM of Denver ABC affiliate KMGH, for 28 years.
“I am proud to be part of such a strong team, and look forward to upholding the great legacy that is KSL,” Brown said in a statement.
KSL is owned by Bonneville International Corporation, which is in turn owned by Deseret Management Corporation, the for-profit arm of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Brown is a graduate of Brigham Young University, which is also owned and operated by the Mormon church.
“I am pleased to welcome Darrell to KSL,” Keith McMullin, president and CEO of KSL parent company Deseret Management Corporation, said in a statement. “He embodies the mission of our organization and brings strong leadership and broadcast experience.”
