Doug Kiel, CEO, Journal Broadcast Group, retires

The fine folks at TVNewsCheck are reporting the pending retirement of Journal Broadcast Group CEO, Doug Kiel.

“I’ve decide to retire from Journal to pursue starting my own company, outside of Milwaukee,” said Doug Kiel. “I’ve really enjoyed my time at Journal and have always felt it was a real privilege to lead the Journal Broadcast Group. I’ll especially miss the great people I’ve worked with and wish them all the best in the future.”

Kiel will stay on through the end of the year, after which Chairman-CEO Steven Smith will take on leadership.

The nature of the company Kiel plans to start is unclear, but we wish him and his new venture all the best.
