It’s a short stay for Mike Rodriguez in L.A. Rodriguez has been manning two stations since September. The VP and general manager of Telemundo’s WSCV-Channel 51 in Miami, he was named interim general manager of KVEA-52 in Los Angeles to replace Manuel Abud, who was removed from the job after the Salinas-Villaraigosa scandal.
Rodriguez is being promoted to senior vice president of sales for Telemundo. He succeeds Steve Mandala.
Ibra Morales, President of Telemundo’s station group, will temporarily take over the helm of KVEA and WSCV, until a decision is made on the new GMs for the two stations.
