McKernan Leaving NRG

Jim McKernan, general manager of NRG Media’s seven-station group in Omaha, will be leaving the company on Oct. 18. He will begin his new job with the Bonten Media Group on Oct. 22.

As vice president and general manager, McKernan (pictured) will be in charge of Bonten’s Tri-City cluster Tennessee/Virginia that includes WCYB-TV(NBC), WEMT-TV (FOX) and CW-4 ( Digital).

“Jim has a long and successful track record in both television and radio,” said Randy Bongarten, president of Bonten Media.

“I worked with Jim at Emmis Television, where he served first as general sales manager and then as vice president and general manager for the Emmis/CBS-affiliated station in Omaha, KMTV. Jim is a highly skilled, strategically focused leader. We're looking forward to having Jim with the Bonten Media Group team.”

Maybe Jim can bring some PR skills from the Big 'O' to these smaller market stations...the photograph they released looks like a mug shot

Wore out his welcome already?

It certainly isn't a mug shot as his back isn't against the background! ;-D (Although the horizontal stripes on his shirt do give one the impression of a number card)

Jim, before you leave Omaha, please contact either Tom Subject or Karl Knoepfler and have a better photo done. Save this one for your passport.

I remain,

The Old Soldering Gunslinger

Perhaps The General noticed that NRG is more screwed up than he thought when he took the gig????
