Meredith Corporation announced that Todd Brown has been promoted to Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer for the Meredith Local Media Group, effective immediately. In his new role, Brown will oversee advertising revenue growth and strategy across Meredith’s station group. He will report to Meredith Local Media Group President Patrick McCreery.
Brown has worked for KVVU-TV (FOX 5), Meredith’s FOX affiliate in Las Vegas, for more than 16 years. He started as Local Sales Manager and worked his way up to Vice President and General Manager, a role he has held for the past six years. Under Brown’s leadership, FOX 5 has been continually recognized as one of the top FOX affiliates in the nation.
“Todd has been a visionary leader for the FOX 5 Las Vegas team, successfully increasing ratings and revenue,” said McCreery. “Under his leadership FOX 5 launched the Surprise Squad franchise, which now generates significant sponsorship revenue across the Meredith Local Media Group. Todd’s leadership and creativity are the perfect combination to lead our sales teams and stations into the future.”
In 2017, Brown was recognized by Broadcasting & Cable as General Manager of the Year. He served as Chairman of the Nevada Broadcasters Association from 2013 to 2017 and was awarded the Nevada Broadcasters’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017. Brown currently serves on the TVB Board of Directors. Prior to joining Meredith in 2002, Brown served as General Sales Manager for KSEE 24 in Fresno, CA.
“It has been a tremendous honor to lead and be a part of the superior FOX 5 Las Vegas team for the past 16 years,” said Brown. “I am excited for the opportunity to work with the sales teams across the Meredith Local Media Group and develop new and innovative ways to serve our advertisers and partners.”
Meredith will conduct a national search to replace Brown at KVVU-TV.
