CBS Boston names news director

Aug 11, 2014

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.

Former CNN anchor Micah Johnson chimed in, "CONGRATS @GaryTVNews on your new gig as ND at @CBSBoston," adding the hashtag #OneOfTheGoodGuys.

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!
