The veteran news director of a Los Angeles TV station is exiting his post. The Los Angeles Times reports that Scott Diener will leave after five years at the KCBS-KCAL duopoly.
Diener is reportedly stepping down as VP and news director to pursue other opportunities.
In a statement, Steve Mauldin, president and general manager of KCBS-KCAL, said: “[Scott] should be proud of what he has accomplished here in Los Angeles during his time at CBS 2 and KCAL 9. We wish him the very best as he moves on to his next adventure and look forward to building on the success that he helped create.”
Diener has been at KCBS-KCAL since January 2010, coming from the CBS-owned Dallas-Fort Worth duopoly KTVT-KTXA — where Mauldin also worked. Mauldin made the move to L.A. in December 2009, the report notes.
