CBS Boston has its next news director: Gary LaPlante begins today as the head of WBZ. LaPlante should be plenty ready for the role: he joins from Fox 25 Boston, where he was assistant news director.
"Welcome to WBZ - looking forward to meeting you on Monday!!" assignment editor Amanda Howes greeted him.
Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
