Mark McKay will be the new vice president and general manager for KTAL-TV, the NBC affiliate for the Shreveport, La.-Texarkana, Texas market, Nexstar Broadcasting announced today.

The hire brings McKay full circle, because he actually began his broadcasting career at KTAL in 1980 as a news anchor/reporter.

In McKay’s previous job, he served as vice president and general manager of three stations in Amarillo, Texas, KAMR-TV, KCIT-TV and KCPN-TV.  Before that, he held other management jobs in the Odessa-Midland and Longview-Tyler-Lufkin, Texas markets.

McKay says his strong relationships in this area will help him in his new role tremendously.

From the news release (available in PDF here):

“At KTAL-TV, I will leverage the management experience and relationships built over my career to generate results and further strengthen Nexstar’s position as a leading provider of the most compelling entertainment programming and local news content. I look forward to working with the team at NBC 6, the station’s advertisers and the local community to further elevate KTAL’s effectiveness in the Ark-La-Tex market,” McKay said.

Nexstar owns or operates more than 50 stations across the U.S.
