Rose will report to Ray Heacox, president and GM of KING-KONG.
“We have several major priorities and projects that need increased focus and I can think of no better leader to help us continue as the dominant media company in Seattle than Jim” Heacox said in a statement.
Rose started at KING in 2000. Previously he worked for KTVX in Salt Lake City and was a research manager for Blair TV in New York. He started his career as promotion coordinator with WPLJ-FM in New York.
As part of the move, director of local sales Jason Xydis will replace Rose as director of sales. Xydis has worked in the KING sales department since 1998.
