Tom Canedo Named GM of Detroit’s WWJ

Tom Canedo has been named vice president and general manager of Detroit CBS O&O, WWJ.  Canedo comes from WUPA, the CBS owned CW affiliate in Atlanta.

“Tom has done a great job of leading our efforts to make WUPA one of the most successful CW stations in the country,” said Peter Dunn, president of CBS Television Stations. “We value his experience and leadership skills and know that they will serve him well as he takes on the responsibility of managing our Detroit stations.”

Canedo succeeds Trey Fabacher who left WWJ to helm Meredith’s WGCL in Atlanta.

WWJ only produces a morning newscast from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and has no local afternoon or evening news.

Canedo said, “This is a market with great upside potential and I am really looking forward to collaborating with my new colleagues to make sure we do an outstanding job of continuing to provide our viewers with great programming and strengthening our relationships with our community and business partners.”

Canedo will also head up CBS owned CW affiliate WKBD.
