KET names Oklahoma TV executive new CEO

The Associated Press

LEXINGTON - Kentucky Educational Television's governing board has named an Oklahoma television executive as the new CEO and executive director.

Malcolm Wall, who is executive director of Oklahoma Educational Television Authority, will begin June 1. Wall will replace Virginia C. Fox, who announced her retirement in December.

Wall has been executive director for the Oklahoma station since 1999. Before that, he was associate director for the statewide Oklahoma network for four years. He has also held senior management positions at public broadcasting stations in Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina.

"Mac Wall has a rare combination of traits," said John Domaschko, chairman of KET's board. "He has the skills and knowledge that are developed over a 33-year career in public television while possessing the level of enthusiasm and energy for his craft that one might see in someone new to the field."

Wall has a marketing degree from Mississippi State and is a former commissioned officer with the National Guard.

A national search was conducted by Ron Bornstein & Associates of Tucson, Ariz.
