As distressing as it was to see KUTV’s longtime vice president/general manager part ways with the station, the new guy is not exactly new.
Nexstar Broadcasting and Four Points Media Group have named Steve Carlston as the new GM/VP of CBS/Ch. 2 and KUSG, an independent station in southern Utah.
Carlston was the boss at Fox’s KSTU-Ch. 13 from 1992-97, and he’s truly one of the good guys in the TV business. I, for one, will be happy to have him back in the Salt Lake television market.
And whoever ends up hiring former KUTV boss Dave Phillip will also be lucky. He’s one of the good guys, too.
