Milwaukee - Jan 22, 2014 - Journal Broadcast Group, the broadcast business of Journal Communications, Inc., announced organizational changes to its leadership team. Steve Wexler, EVP and general manager of Journal Broadcast Group’s Milwaukee radio and television operations, was named executive vice president of radio for Journal Broadcast Group, reporting to Andre Fernandez, president and CFO of Journal Communications. Debbie Turner, EVP and general manager WTVF/Nashville, was named executive vice president of television for Journal Broadcast Group, also reporting to Fernandez.

Wexler was also recently elected to the National Association of Broadcasters board of directors.

Jim Prather, EVP and general manager of KTNV/Las Vegas, will continue to oversee operations for KTNV, but will step away from his regionally aligned role as head of Journal Broadcast Group’s Western region to assume group-wide strategic responsibilities for a number of strategic television efforts including retransmission consent agreement negotiations, network relations, original programming initiatives and TV Everywhere strategy and execution. He will report to Turner in this role.

According to Fernandez, moving away from regional alignment to a segment alignment of television and radio will allow each business to capitalize on a more singular, focused approach.
