It is a return to KPIX-KBCW for Flynn, who worked at the stations from 1999-2006. He has most recently worked as general sales manager at KOFY, the independent station in San Francisco.
“Chris is a proven winner with great experience and established relationships in this market. He is also a talented manager and inventive marketing executive. We are elated that Chris is returning to our stations,” KPIX-KBCW general manager Bruno Cohen said in a statement.
Flynn succeeds Dan Ackerman, who last month was named senior vice president for business strategy and ad innovation at the CBS Television stations.
