Jim Arnold has been named vice president and general manager of Journal Broadcast Group’s Tucson operations, which include KGUN, KWBA and four radio stations.
From 2000 to 2010, Arnold was the general manager at KGUN’s crosstown rival, CBS affiliate KOLD. He has also worked as VP-GM of WQRF in Rockford, Ill. and KMAR-KCIT in Amarillo, Texas.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Tucson stations of the Journal Broadcast Group,” Arnold said in a statement. “Many of the talented people here have been peers and friends for many years and I look forward to working with them and the entire team in serving our audiences and advertisers.”
Arnold replaces Julie Brink, who left KGUN-KWBA last month.
