Mike Lewis has been named vice president and general manage of KTBC, the Fox O&O in Austin. His appointment is effective immediately.

Lewis joins KTBC from another Fox O&O, KRIV in Houston, where he has been the vice president and general sales manager for four years.

“Mike has done a stellar job in leading our Houston sales team,” Fox Television stations CEO Jack Abernethy said in a statement. “His extensive knowledge of the broadcast industry and strategic approach to our business make him the ideal choice as we look to maintain and grow KTBC’s position in the Austin market.”

Lewis replaces Mark Rodman, who joined Fox O&O KSAZ in Phoenix as general manager last month.
