CBS to Merge Local and National TV News Under Two New Executives

CBS named veteran media executives Neeraj Khemlani and Wendy McMahon to lead a combined news operation and TV station group, putting its network and local news businesses in 17 markets under one roof.

Khemlani, formerly with Hearst Corp., and McMahon, who led ABC’s stations group, will be co-heads of CBS News and television stations, the broadcaster said Thursday in a statement. Departing CBS News chief Susan Zirinsky will assist in the transition.
