He previously served as chairman of Buena Vista Television--now Disney-ABC Television Distribution-and its pay television operation. He has also served as president and general manager of WABC-TV in New York.

The stable includes WABC-TV in New York; KABC-TV in Los Angeles; WLS-TV in Chicago; WPVI-TV in Philadelphia; KGO-TV in San Francisco; KTRK-TV in Houston; WTVD-TV in Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; KFSN-TV in Fresno, Calif.; WJRT-TV in Flint, Mich.; and WTVG-TV in Toledo, Ohio.
