CBS Boston names news director

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.
