Two TV Maintenance Engineers have moved to KFMB-TV from XETV Bay City Television just ahead of the closure of the Bay City facility down the street in Kearny Mesa.
Jeff Latimer had served as Broadcast Engineer and Facilities Manager at Bay City Television since 2012. He started March 6 as Broadcast Maintenance Engineer at KFMB Stations.
Mark Goodman had served as Director of Engineering at Bay City Television since 2013. He started March 12 as Broadcast Maintenance Engineer at KFMB Stations. He will continue some part-time work at XETV in the transition period. Mark started with Bay City in January 2006.
KFMB-TV 8 will be taking over the CW Network affiliation contract and the CW6 identity in San Diego from XETV Tijuana, which decided to close its U.S. operations at the end of May. The last day of news programming at XETV was Friday, March 31.
KFMB is also hiring news, operations, sales, and programming personnel in anticipation of the CW affiliation.
