CLEVELAND-- FOX 8 has a new leader!
Paul Perozeni, who has been our General Sales Manager for 13 years, has been promoted to Vice President and General Manager.
The announcement was made Monday afternoon by Lynda King, the Chief Operating Officer of the Tribune Company, which owns FOX 8.
She called Paul the "perfect choice" to lead the station because of his "deep appreciation" for the legacy of the station and its commitment to Northeast Ohio.
Paul has been with FOX 8 since 1999.
He graduated from the University of Akron and received his Masters at John Carroll University.
Paul replaces Greg Easterly who left to run our Tribune sister station, WGN, in Chicago.
Paul called it "a privilege, honor and a blessing" to now lead the station that he grew up watching.
Our congratulations to Paul: one of Cleveland's Own!
