Gannett’s Ogden to Retire in July

May 14, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Roger Ogden, president and CEO of Gannett Broadcasting and senior VP of design, innovation and strategy at Gannett Co., will retire in early July after a career spanning four decades.
Mr. Ogden spent most of that time associated with the company. His Gannett ties started in 1967 at KBTV-TV, now KUSA-TV, in Denver, where he would become news director in 1978, after a brief stint at Louisville, KY’s WLKY-TV. He became general manager of a KCNC-TV, a non-Gannett station in Denver, and in 1995 moved to NBC as president and managing director of NBC Europe.
In 1997, Mr. Ogden returned to Gannett as president and general manager of KUSA-TV. He was named a senior VP of Gannett Broadcasting in 1999, and president and CEO in 2005. He added the design, innovation and strategy oversight title in 2006.
“Gannett has always been home base for me throughout my career, and I appreciate all that I’ve been able to do here,” Mr. Ogden said in the announcement of his retirement. “I’ve always said I’ll know when it’s time and that time has come. Going out as head of the best broadcast group in the USA and returning to my home in Colorado makes this difficult decision easier.”
