Hearst Television – New Business Unit to Develop and Produce Original Programming for Hearst Television
- by Team
“Hearst Television, creator and leader in digital television, newscasts and newsmagazines in the United States, has announced the appointment of former Channel 12 general manager David Bronson to its new programming department. The hire comes as Hearst Television will continue to add local news talent from New York City in a new network that will serve the local community.
For the record, there is no mention (and I’m sure there is no “official” one) of Bronson in the article title or article text.
In fact, there is no mention of Hearst’s decision making in any way. For example, it’s not mentioned what the Hearst-generated story of the new New York-based regional news network said or insinuated that Bronson was planning to “replace” Chris Doppla. Furthermore, I note that the Hearst article that mentions Bronson is from January 2013, before the Hearst-generated news that Bronson was planning to “replace” Doppla (in any way) was brought to light by his own (and Hearst’s) own “reporting.
In short, this article mentions no information about Hearst’s hiring decisions in any of its three major media markets.
The Hearst article in the Wall Street Journal (that mentions Bronson as Hearst-created News Network) also mentions the Hearst-generated story of the new network that would be based in New York City.

New business unit to develop and produce original programming for Hearst Television.
The Hearst Television Group, which includes Hearst Video, Hearst Entertainment, Hearst Picture and Hearst Music, has recently undergone a major reorganization and restructuring (read the company’s full press release) into a newly created division within the new Hearst Television Group. This process has led to two new business units to take on the responsibility of developing and producing original programming for Hearst Television, as well as a separate business unit dedicated to television production work with media companies.
Hearst Television, announced on April 30, 2010, will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Hearst, which in turn will own and operate Hearst Interactive TV and Hearst TV News.
“Hearst Television, the third largest producer of cable and satellite television in the United States, and the industry leader in content, is re-imagining itself to become an entertainment and sports company,” said Hearst Vice-President of Marketing and Business Relations David A. “The company will continue to focus on digital television and content with Hearst. tv News and Hearst. tv Entertainment. We’re going to continue to serve our viewers with a variety of programs, entertainment, and sports, but we’ll be using some unique technologies that are going to change how the industry watches the game. If you’re an avid fan of the NBA, you might want to think about watching our digital broadcasts on their new website.
“I am excited that Hearst has chosen to completely refocus its focus and talent on creating original programs for the Internet, as well as the opportunity to lead the industry in digital production,” said Hearst Entertainment Chairman Richard F. “There are several unique opportunities that this company now has. The company will continue to focus on developing, producing, and delivering original programming that will engage our viewers. We’re going to be producing and acquiring content wherever it’s most appropriate for HearstTV and we’re going to be creating a new generation of entertainment. It’s a very exciting time for Hearst; we’re changing the world through entertainment.
A conversation with Hearst Television executive vice president and general manager
Hearst Television is a large, diverse media holding company. It operates a national cable television network and a group of 22 cable and related networks in a variety of genres. It is the parent company of the Cable News Network and two of its sister cable networks: The American Broadcasting Company at channel 29 and the Fox Broadcasting Company at channel 34.
After 20 years at Hearst Television I was asked by Chairman and CEO Bernard Goldberg to become executive vice president and general manager for Hearst Television. It was a pleasure to work with him on a variety of projects.
Bill Keese is a partner at Keese and Keese, a public relations firm and a well-known media consultant.
During a phone interview, Keese explained why he left the company. A brief outline of his remarks follows.
I was hired by Hearst TV in 1976 because I had experience in sales and promotions. I was not the person they recruited to head the cable network. I did a sales job on the cable network from the very beginning and I was promoted to executive vice president and general manager in 1984.
I had no experience in cable television nor a great deal in sales. I did not have time to go to sales seminars, to visit customers, or to meet with executives. My role was to handle business in sales. I knew nothing about cable television or programming. I was a junior in college and I did not know how to function in a room. I came to the company because I wanted to make a difference in the industry. I did not want to be the first to give the cable network an idea of what had to be done to achieve a success.
Hearst TV was looking for someone who knew the industry. I did the job as well as a sales job. I knew nothing about cable television or programming. All of our cable channel salesmen and managers were all managers or directors.
Hearst Television Company
Hearst Media is the parent company of the New York Times, which has owned the Hearst newspapers since 1923. Hearst Media owns a large and growing portfolio of newspapers including The New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times, as well as a growing list of television brands. Hearst Television produces and operates a 24-hour news distribution service called News 11 West and a Sunday Night News Network. Hearst Television was founded in 1838 in New York City by James Hearst. At the time, the Hearst media empire included The New York Times, News & World, The New York Press, The New York Evening Telegram, The New York Herald, The New York Herald-Tribune, and The New York World. Hearst Media is a founding member of News Corp’s News division, the parent company of Today. With an estimated market value of $21. 1 billion, this Forbes article will be relevant if you haven’t heard about it. The article was originally published by Hearst Media here.
What an amazing article! It made me laugh out loud and that is a rarity. It is nice to see that the NYT is being sold off and that it did not get a complete overhaul at all. I am glad that they are moving away from the old Times business model of newspapers and moving to what will be a much more profitable media environment.
I am sorry about the New York Post. I had forgotten that there still is a New York Post and I can’t get it into my browser. It says as of today that the New York Post has to be sold and has to go to a third party. That’s my only regret, the loss of the NYC Post.
I have to add something. I feel bad for all the people who worked for the NYTs. I was the most excited person in the office when it was in its heyday. I worked there all the time, even on the day of the first World’s Fair. I knew all the people who worked there. I worked for Hearst Publications and they were just great to work for, in every way. I can’t thank them enough for letting me be a part of their legacy.
I work at the Hearst Television station in Los Angeles.
